Please review my videos on Instagram, the key you posted can only open/close/start the car, it's a fancy regular key with M logo and display, so a regular key in a display key shell. The key I offer and that's proven to work can do a lot more, since its display is reading live information from the car, like battery voltage, status of doors/windows/lights, etc.
I don't want to bash the product you posted here, but please don't just go by the price and don't inform yourself about the functionality and quality.
Posting the cheapest AliExpress display key is not helping anybody. Or did you purchase one and it's working on your car? Any videos?
When it comes in I will let you know how well it works or if it is a POS. This version came out of China a few weeks ago so I have not seen anyone test it yet. For $130 its worth a go before I spent almost $300 on a key.

I'm curious, please let us know. And take some videos, I want to understand the functionality! Do you have someone to program the key for you?
Can you post some pics of this actual key, what else was included? How's the quality feel?

I have a Yanhua ACDP so I am going to program it myself. I am not sure if it has any cellular function or not. In the US we do not have 2G cell service so I could not use any of that functionality anyway.

Just for clarification purposes:
The display key I offer here has the following features:

- fully functional display, showing vital car data via communication module (separate part)
- can be charged via cable or inductive charging pad
- standby time with full charge is up to 100 days
- retains comfort access and saved car settings
- exact copy of your original key
- upgrade to remote start possible (complex, pricey and will require 1 original key to stay in car)
- 2G network capability for extended range
- metal case and high quality touchscreen
- English menu
- BMW logo closing button (not generic)

Here's a similar display, offered on AliExpress. Including shipping and customs fees, it's even more than $300! Therefore I source them in Europe, but the price is still in this range.

Please compare all the features before judging this type of key by the price. There are major differences.

Great news! Please keep us posted, I'm here to support if needed. DHL shipping is pricey, but best service and reliability.

Or fuck it I may just drive up there. The pictures SCD posted earlier look like a different language and I'll probably break all the fucking clips.

Sounds like a fun idea. But honestly, you can't really break any clips, it's just removing a pretty sturdy cover and unhooking some wires. Unfortunately, I didn't create a DIY for the removal of the CAS4 unit, but it was fairly pleasant, unlike installing my M Performance steering wheel with race display 😜Competition C and I will come up with a better tutorial for the CAS topic

I got my display key today and I was able to put the metal trim from my OEM display key to the aftermarket one. My key also has a cutout for the sim card slot even though it does not support any cellular functions. I have a feeling your display keys will have the same case as mine. Does anyone have the firmware for these keys? I want to get rid of the M logo on the lock screen. My computer reconsiders the key when turned off and eventually pops up as a USB drive.
