Highly recommended. Great key blanks and service. I have had mine now for several months. I actually twisted the stock OEM key once turning on the ignition!!! Of course it was also as easy as playing with silly putty to bend it back straight again. Not sure how many times you could do that without breaking that stock key and leaving it stuck in the ignition switch.

update...

Hey folks...

Sorry been spotty with the key thing. The old merchant account system was bleeding me dry with various fees so we moved to Paypal.

Downside is the keys are slightly more expensive (2 for 8.00 instead of 2 for 6.00) because of paypal per transaction fees and other factors.

Upside is you can now order multiples of 1, 2, 4 or 6! Pricing still includes shipping to North America and has been updated on the original post.

Thanks Guys!

Hmm...maybe I could implant one beneath the surface of my skin. That'd learn me if I lost my key.

Can the plastic head be ground down/off leaving it functional, i.e., is there enough metal under the plastic to hold & turn?

I don’t care if it ends up pretty... I just want one that’s as flat as possible to carry as an emergency spare in my wallet...

Thanks

So I got my keys yesterday and today had the adventure of finding a place in the greater Seattle area that would cut steel keys. Luckily a Beemer forum came in handy because walkins and calling was not producing. Those in the Seattle area that need these blanks cut, Broadway Locksmith will do them for five a pop; their address is 918 East John Street in Seattle.

Your best bet is to take it to a traditional hardware or five and dime store for cutting. This is a good chance to visit your local ACE hardware store.

I visited a couple major locksmith companies in the area and they stick the keys on a magnet to check their steel compound. Soon as it sticks to the magnet they're like "We won't cut it." They've got like 5 different cutting machines and they won't touch it.

I figure most locksmiths now are so commercial all they do is home and office work.

Anyway glad you found a place!

I need one or two.
In Europe that is.

I once bent the OEM key and straightened it back by hand. It's amazing how soft the metal is.

EU order...

Since the keys are made in Italy I figured the EU crew should have access to them. Guess I was wrong!

If you guys can get an order for at least 25 together, we can work out something to get a bunch over there.

That happens to me all the time! I just started selling these on ebay, but for more than you can get them through here. Ebay takes about 2 buck from each sale so the price had to go up. Plus, I figure you guys are part of the community and should get at least a little break.

Good question, I haven't dissected one so don't know for sure. You don't need a whole lot of force to turn the key so as long as there's even a little metal flange under the plastic, then you should be okay.

It would seem silly to order them from US if they are available somewhere in Italy or Europe.
Could you tell us what is the manufactures marking of the key?
Looks like X105.
