Goto Honeydale mall in Etobicoke, Dundas and 427 (east of 427) Same mall as Walmart, there's an asian guy in the middle of the corridor with a small vendor that cuts keys. He's the only guy that I could find in the area that can do it.

why not go to a dealer? i had to replace mine, they asked for ownership of car, vin # and licence..
it costs like 30 bucks (w/ light in the key)

Hey BMXer, go to Queenston Auto parts in Streetsville, they do it. I also had it done in Wallmart but not all stores have blank BMW keys.

arn't bimmer keys laser cut and impossible to copy???

Anyways...there's a dude at Pacific mall...he's got some security shop that sells safes and whatnot...and copies keys...ALL MAKES!!
Even Lexus and Mercedes keys according to his advertisement...sounds like impossible.

The old bimmers like BMXer and mine have regular keys
that get cut for $5 like other keys, the problem is that very
few places have blanks for BMW...
