Mein Auto: Mini Cooper
I wouldn't waste your money. I'm extremely frustrated with my AK90. It does a decent job reading the keys and IMU for my MiniCooper 2002, but it cannot program a PCF7930AS transponder chip that is already used. OK, so the answer is to get a new one, right? Well, try doing it and you'll be frustrated too! NOBODY seems to sell these things in reasonable quantities or for a reasonable price. As a result, I decided to try to use an emulator too. That was almost as bad as the AK90 quest, maybe worse! The Chinglish directions are misleading and confusing. I just gave up on that too. I think I'll have to swallow my pride and go to the dealer to get a key. I'm not happy about it at all but I need a spare key for my (new to me) car I bought. I learned a tough lesson though.... NEVER buy a car with only one key!
