NEW FOB

Hey guys,

I'm trying to get a new key for my 2006 E90 so I called dealerships. Is there a reason their prices are all different?

I was quote from 270 - 360 for non comfort access remote plus key.

Anyone know cheapest dealership to get the FOB?

(NEW to this forum, hi)

I'd check out eBay. You'll save a tonne.

Have you or anyone had any success with buying a FOB off of EBAY?

I guess I'd search for a procedure somewhere to program it?

A friend of mine purchased his fob off of ebay and then had the local dealership program it for ~150. Not sure what year was that though.

Search the forums. I'm not sure about procedures for an '06, but a little digging on Google produced a tonne of info.

Just don't let the stealership take you for 270+ to program a key. Even if this isn't a DIY, it shouldn't take more than 30 minutes for a dealer.

go to dealership and ask for discount.

Can get them for about low $200/programmed after tax

Well since you mentioned it was for a non comfort key the programing is quite simple,
i got a new fob under warranty for mine and all i had to do was put it in the key holder and start the car, it programs it self after that.

I misplaced one of my fobs earlier this year and looked into getting another. I realized after many hours of searching here and online info that the car actually programs the key, no need to pay the dealer or take the car there for it if i'm correct. I am unsure of the exact method to do it but it is posted somewhere on this forum, i am unsure of your model, year or if you have comfort access or not so this method may or may not work for you. Do some searching...... I found my fob so i didnt need to do any of this..

if you have brand new blank key from dealer, you can program it by insert into key slot. then it will program itself. (only for new blank key)
