Hello,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

Shantal

I will be honest

 

I trust that this will be appreciated. please remember that a low raring PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked

 

if you are on a subscription plan with multiple questions, you still need to select a positive rating to credit your expert, although you will not be charged anything additional

 

unfortunately you will need to have MINI program the key barcodes into the new body module, this is the only way to get the keys to work with the new body module.

 

Sorry if you were hoping for a different answer, please don't shoot the messenger - I can only give the honest answer, which I have. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for my honest and prompt response, and I receive nothing for my time and answer until a positive rating is clicked.

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
