Diamond Key transfer

While rummaging around at the boneyard between several e83s i come across a key that appears almost new! I needed a key as replacement .
Can I simply bring in the newly found key to the dealership and have them program it to my car? If so what's the cost ?

You can use the "unlock and lock" function of the diamond key...but not to start your vehicle.

To program the FOB function is pretty easy. Search YT for a video--as there are many. For free, btw.

Here's what I've decided...
Going to remove the dme,ews, ignition key tumbler and the driver door tumbler.
I'll install in my car from the donor car.

It would be better to repair your old key and/or order another one from the dealer.

I agree...but i want the experience.
And if i run across someone selling the car but has no key... I'll be prepared. Huh?
