Most aftermarket keys are brass and are much softer than the steel keys.
BMW does sell steel key blanks that you can have cut elsewhere; not many places will cut them though.

Paying that much for a key is ridic IMO.

Also incase you were going to: Please don't give me that "you own a bmw expect to pay the price" I will pay $8 for my keys and don't ever plan on owning a bmw where I will have to pay more than that.

not like we have a choice ... no one can cut the key the same way .. has to be ordered from germany and it comes with the buttons (unlock, lock, trunk).

I needed a spare just in case
