    Default BMW key programmer

    Does anyone in Calgary/ area do key programming and cutting for BMW?
    Stealer wanted $600 for a new key so I bought a knockoff one on ebay. It might work, might not.

    Mostly I want a backup hard key so i can at least get in the car for emergency.

    This is the pay to play they refer to when talking about euro cars...

    Yes I know euros are pricey.

    By law manufactures can't stop licensed locksmiths from cutting and program a key from any manufacture.
    Provided they have tools. Just looking for a locksmith with BMW tools.

    Normally, you'd be right. That's the going rate for basically any smart key though.

    Last one I had to replace was for a 10 year old lexus, still upwards of $600 at the dealer.

    Buddy of mine had to replace a prox key for his focus, and it was going to be $450 or something.

    Why call it stealer? It's as simple as this, can you readily buy a 100% reliable key at a much reduced price elsewhere? If not, then they're not stealing your money - instead it's more a case of that you bought into a system/product line and now you are upset that your pocketbook is going to take a hit to play.
