E30 Spare Key.

Is the dealer the only place to get a spare key??

Where can i go to get a key cut? I need an extra, anyone know if i can get one for cheaper than i pay at the dealer.

Im pretty sure a normal key cutting place can't cut one......or can they?

Its not that bad actually, if you need a key made at the dealer its $25 if you lost it and have to go by VIN #, if you have a key and just need a double it might be less.

What about Reno Depot?

Man I went to Crappy Tire for my Toyota Key and they couldn't do it.

Also speaking of spares what about e36 keys? Dealer only? Laser Cut.......Price?
