How much does another key cost?

I need spare key for my car, only got one when i bought it. How much does another key cost for a 95 318i? I think there are 3 types of keys if I can recall, a key with a light, a regular key and a valet key. How much does each one cost? Also is there a chip in the key that will cost me a fortune to reprogram the system just to get one more key? Thanks.

Why not just call a dealer and ask them most likley you can't just go into a key shop and get one made for you

$58 for the regular and valet key
$72 for the key with light

10 business days after ordering, they are actually cut in Germany and shipped here.

I don't think you can get it cut anywhere. The parts guy told me that it's cut with a special machine that's why they have to order it. Could be bull but if you find out let me know.


BTW: how does the key with the light look like?
