Try google. Search for the year and model of your car and with any luck shhaaazzaammm!! And if not you need to take it to the dealer and have them code it for you. Hope this helps buddy.

Did you buy one from a dealer online? Dealer is the only place that can program it, I thought keys were vin specific could be wrong though.

keys are vin specific so if you bought it online you wasted your money. keys can only be ordered from the dealer

thank you for the feedback, i guess i wasted my money

DIZNIK007, i like your wheels, what are they and what is the diameter? my 750 is in the same color comb of blk saf and 19inch wheel. I am thinking about upgrading the wheels to the 128 21 inch bmw wheels.

diz has 20 inch BMW wheels called style 149, they usually come on the car with a sport package.

his wheels are tiny in size compared to most of our 22's but we like him anyway

yup-what moneyman said. if you want the best look, skip the 21's and just get the 22's. if your an old man like me (34) and want to avoid the scoliosis, go with 20's.
20's still look plenty pimp - shamelss plug

yeah buy keys only from the dealer with the VIN not at ebay, that's not possible.

You can program your key or better call it coding your key at the dealer or with the softwareprogram Progman and then use the car and key memory button.

Coding is easy and nothing can go wrong. Programming is more exiting and more expansive.
