Replacement Key

Post by wlmoate » Sun Jan 14, 2018 10:27 am

Hello all,

I would like a 3rd key for my 125D, is it possible to purchase a 2nd hand key and program this myself at home? Or are used ekys not able to be re-used on another vehicle? I am not in need of the physical key part.

Given all the furore in recent years about BMW keys being reprogrammed and used to steal cars, I (along with most other owners) very much hope not!

You'll need to buy it from your dealer and get them to code it to your car. Even if it is still possible to code a key yourself - and I really, *really* hope BMW have learned their lesson on that - the price of the kit needed to do it will be far more than the price of a key from your dealer.
