    Replacement Key- Nice Surprise!

    Hi. I just received my replacement key for my Euro Spec BMW Z8. I was expecting a generic key but instead received the Z8 logo key! What a great surprise.

    I guess that BMW must be reproducing it as I understood it was NLA

    The only bad news is that the remote control is not working though the key works and includes opening the ignition lock..

    Perhaps it needs coding to the car??

    I just found this and will try it next

    To carry out this procedure you need to have one working key and one key which requires programming. Please read on if you do not have a working key as this is also covered further down. It may help sometimes to hold the key close to the rear view mirror as this is where the sensor is located in most models.
    1. With both keys, get in the car and close all windows and doors.
    2. Put working key into the ignition and turn to position 1 (the accessories should turn on)
    3. Turn the key back to position 0 and take the key out of the ignition.
    4. Using the working key, hold down the unlock button, press the BMW logo (lock button) 3 times, and release the unlock button. Doors should lock and unlock.
    5. With the new key, hold down the unlock button and press the BMW logo (lock button) 3 times and let go of the unlock button. Doors should lock and unlock and you're done!!

    Sure..it is 66126933718

    Note that this is the EU frequency key. The US one works on an alternate frequency.
