A wee word of warning.
We’ll very rarely be the cheapest quote you get, unless you the only other quote you get is from the dealer.
My view is that, not only is it essential that you know how to do the work, but that you know how to fix it when it goes wrong – as it inevitably will. That’s why I’ll only deal with BMW, JLR and Mini.
This BMW F30 FEM (Front Electronic Module) was damaged when making a spare key – no names, no pack drill – and had a broken pin which prevented the near side front indicator from working. There are as many as eight or nine connectors on the FEM and access is tight, so, it can happen to even the most careful of professionals – though, it has to be said that most of them wouldn’t open the module by breaking every single clip off the base, then leave the security compromised and accessible by obd after making the key, nor would they disappear off the face of the planet, once the problem was discovered.
We were able to repair the FEM by removing the broken pin and resoldering a new one in its place, to save the customer a £600 bill for a new FEM. If that hadn’t been possible we would have been able to replace the FEM with a good used one, and program/code it to the car, so that the existing keys continued to work.
