RE: E92 Key Programming
Hey bud. We discussed this offline, but for anyone else's benefit, you cannot reuse a secondhand key.

There are tools to virgin secondhand keys, but you need to crack open the key, ruining the case. You'll also have to source a new blade, as the existing blade has already been cut for another car. Only then can you reprogram the key.

Truth be told, the money doesn't sit in the cost of the key, but in the equipment needed to safely program keys, and the ability to recover from inevitable mishaps that can happen. Sometimes it takes 5 minutes to program a key, or it takes an hour when the car has the latest software.

And now with F series cars there's an additional layer of complexity in allowing aftermarket keys to be programmed to the cars, further pushing up the price.

Sorry for the rant, but figured it can be informative.

PMs don’t work, so if I don’t reply I’m not being rude.

Hi Gert,

Which programmer/reader do you need for the E92 key's transponder? Will a Mini Zed Bull read/copy and write new keys for these cars?

Hi Rastlaaf,

I bought a key online, matching my current frequency. Would you be able to code it for me? And for how much?
