BMW key copying

The previous owner had lost all but one key. Ordering a spare from BMW would cost close to $300 for a full functioning key with wireless entry. I opted for the DIY route:

$60 BMW AK90+ key programmer tool
$10 blank key with electronics
$30 to the local locksmith to cut the blank to match the original

Everything broke

Sorry for the lack of posts. I had a pretty rough 2015. Some things you just can't fix. Hoping this year will be better.

BMW e46 intermittent BC button

There is a "BC" button on end of the turn signal controller that cycles through the on-board computer info on my dash. It has only been working half the time I press it. Taking it apart, I found the wires had gotten pinched. I reconnected and extended them to add some flexibility.
