    hi chaps and chapesses,
    ive recently purchased a 1995 318i (se?) and thrilled i am with it oo..but...

    i only got one key and one sigma remote with it,and the bloke before me only got them too.

    ive seen replacements for remote on an auction site quite cheap(£20) thing is can i program this myself at home? how? as i want to have a spare in the cupboard just in case.
    also same situation with the key can i get a spare from same site and have it cut at normal key cutter or does it have to be bmw dealer?

    the alarm is sigma ac38 so im led to believe
    and the key is well just looks like a normal key,no buttons other than the little light.

    any help would be great

    thanks in advance

    The sigma ac38 key fob can only be programmed with diagnostic equipment(cp1 programmer) so no you won't be able to do it yourself.

    As for the key, do you have a EWS pick up antenna ring around your ignition barrel? If so then you'll only be able to get a key from the dealers because it is chipped.
