Mein Auto: 328Ci

One of my friends traded in his M3 and he kept one of the keys. Is there any way that I can use this in my 328ci? Can the key be re-cut? If not can I use it as a remote only?

No you can't re-cut the key nor can you use the remote as the keys are unique to the car.

If you want an M3 key badly (I supposed it's just the M3 logo on the key?) could you order an M3 blank and have your dealer cut and/or program it for your 328? I'm assuming the blank is exactly the same as non-M3 keys...
