Isn't this question answered in the PDF (BMW's training document) found in post #6?

An excerpt from page 24 addresses the point; emphasis added
*************
MODEL YEAR 2000 FZV KEY
Visual Changes:
New appearance with blue and white BMW roundel.
New button arrangement (larger buttons) with sequential operation (enhanced operating
convenience)
Rechargeable battery replaces replaceable batteries. Charged by EWS ring antenna.
The key housing is encapsulated and can not be opened.
The LED has been omitted.
Key will be used in E46, E38 and E39 vehicles.
*************

Or am I missing something?
