Modernize your F-Chassis key. The newest iteration of M keys from BMW are an enormous step forward in terms of design. Their heavier weight gives them a more sturdy, high-end feel and even the ergonomics of the key itself have massively improved.
With Gates Innovations, the leader of both E and F-Chassis key upgrades, we are now proud to offer this upgrade service through Future Classic for F-Chassis vehicles with comfort access and 3-button OEM key fobs. Simply send your functioning OEM key to us and we take care of the retrofit without any negative impact to comfort access operation, vehicle feature coding, or dealer key scanning. The unique "Black Edition" designation—exclusive to Future Classic—means your new key will come fitted with beautiful black buttons and a gloss black surround by default.
NOTE: Donor key (OEM) fob buttons will no longer function after the retrofit. We recommend that you use a third party BMW locksmith to properly cut the blank key blade on your new fob in the event that you need to use it.
How do I determine my key frequency? Remove the physical key blade from the housing and look of the top side of the key fob. There, you'll either see "315" or "434" laser etched on the plastic.
