Question: key fob upgrade?

Since I have Comfort Access and dont need to insert my key into the dash, I was wondering if it was possible to upgrade the keyfob to newer looking BMW keys.
I'm looking into coding and those options so, of course, I'd love to be able to just order some new keyfob online somewhere and code them in myself.
Think this could happen? Or have any of you been successful?

You might be able to buy a shell somewhere and switch the insides.
It has nothing to do with coding.
