Cheap key replacement?

25 posts in this topic

Anyone know a cheap key replacement supplier in Auckland?

E90 3 series with comfort access.

I understand it requires some coding and looking for an option cheaper than Dealer

Unless you have an old broken/worn out key to get the chip from, its off to the dealer.

Express keys in Penrose can help with this. Don't ring... they don't answer the phone... too busy

Go there

Would you like me to drive over there for you and ask them and then report back to you ??...... because I don't know for sure. You would need to check with them and they usually don't answer the phone as I said in my second post on here

Ok so you dont know thanks for clearing that up. Because you seem to make it pretty clear in your first couple of posts they can do this.

Anyone else that actually knows this? Without having to drive there to confirm?

Most key places can take your original key and clone it, they read the chip in the key then copy it in the new key.

So they may be able to help you.

But seriously. Any business that can't answer their phone hardly deserves new customers right?

The market isn't the only opening I see for them either...

Digging up a slightly old thread to vouch for Express Keys. Finally got mine sorted after having my stereo taken last week.

E46 Key sorted out today in 40 minutes for less than $350.

Awesome guys there, I can see why Glenn said to just show up - the place is packed with cars.

What key did you make? With or without remote control? Can you please post a photo? Also what was the exact cost? Cheers

I was told mine was the most expensive because the whole key needed to be replaced, not just the transponder(?). Early E46 keys will still start the car regardless of the door controls still working. Sorry haven't done a whole lot of research on keys, more something I like to leave to the professionals.

The place is around the back of 930, there's a garage and a big 26 above the door. If you go there, you'll find it easy.

It's not worth ringing, but after seeing some of the stuff he was working on (VW's that even VW NZ couldn't get to start), I have no doubt he'll be able to do whatever you need.

Don't want to disclose the price as I assume every job is slightly different but as I said earlier, I didn't have to pay the $350 I expected to pay. Cheers.
