new keys for E53

I'm in need of a new key complete with transmitter.

does anyone know of an on-line vendor that can supply them pre-cut or even with a blank blade and I'll get it cut locally?

I've tried "clickable" in melbourne without luck

I have a scan tool that can reprogram keys if i can find a new blank one. Local BMW wanted $600

None on ebay

thanks

As per another post, talk to Cliff at PartAgents. He can get OEM anything for our BMW's. BMW Spare Parts Australia | BMW e30, e46, 318i car parts | Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, all Australia |. His number is on that page.

Plenty on eBay, such this BRAND NEW & VIRGIN TRANSPONDER KEY BMW 3, 5, 7, X5, Z4 ,REMOTE KEY HEAD FOB | eBay
I forgot the link to a guy in Sydney who's also selling it on eBay.
Rob, there's no such thing as "OEM key". BMW holds exclusive right to their key fob (that's why it's $600+), but it couldn't stop the Chinese to copy the technology.

Yep, I understand that, why I referred the site was it would not a chinese rubbish key, that could actually be able to be programmed correctly. I have heard so many instances people buy cheap keys and then cant get it programmed or they simply dont work.

I dont agree with the $600+ from BMW and I dont agree with buying Chinese rubbish, but personally, for something like the key I would prefer going to BMW or a BMW parts supplier.

One other thing.

Isnt it hard to find someone to cut the key as well? I am sure I have read that a lot of these key cutting facilities dont do them..

Just ask if the machine can cut side-winder keys. It's no difference to, say, a Honda key. The really high-end machine can cut key without the original, provided that you know the ISO code for the key, which is mapped to your VIN. Unfortunately this mapping is held in BMW headquarter
Another note about programming. There's no reason why a "cheap key" cannot be programmed unless it's been programmed before. The Elmos chip allows only one-time programming and it's only a $2 piece of silicon
Nevertheless, I agree that for a total peace of mind, cough $660 to get it from BMW. To get it cut somewhere else, you're giving away the secret that will enable a third party to cut more key to steal your car if they want to.

Terryo

Please read my reply to a post on the American site in reply to someone else with only one key. Yes an aftermarket key can be done no problems. I also refused to pay $675 plus re coding of $70 plus freight of ?
I seem to have upset some of the good old boys buy pointing out that the world does not have to march to BMW's tune. BMW do not build the key, ECM module or the other computers in the car and actually come from the lowest vendor, which is why the motorcycle section is currently in serious warranty problems with very poor quality electronics and ABS modules( I have just returned from the factory in Berlin).
The car receiver gets a signal from the key (or anything else that can exactly reproduce it). My key from Ebay Hong Kong works just fine, but do your home work on the correct one not cheap crap. One of our Electronics Engineers at work assures me that a device freely available on the net can be made to copy any car signal code and reproduce it, just by being there when the car is unlocked, I am pleased he is honest.

Coding the replacement key is very easy following the steps on the American site.

Good Luck
