Correct key?

As most of us have probably learned, no good deed goes unpunished (lol). I lent my 2015 825i to a friend, it came back with the key broken off in the ignition switch. After researching, I'm almost sure I've found the correct replacement. Can someone with this model please confirm that this looks like your key (I like the dust cover): https://www.greenpartstore.com/John-...-AUC12681.html .


Thanks!

A broken key removal tool set is real handy. The key blanks are actually a Briggs/Stratton which can be found at most key places. A locksmith can cut a new key with the recovered shank. Otherwise, most JD dealers stock spare keys as they tend to be cut the same. If not, they're a few days away on shipping.

This wont fit

As a mechanic i always have the dinky key on my personal chain as it saves space and it does not break off like the flag style which tend to break near the ring.
On my secondary work set of keys i have the flag style

Thanks for the reply. Yeah, the removal tool is good except when the key was broken at a point where I can't get to it and it's twisted into the switch (clearly my friend doesn't know his own strength LOL). It's ok, for $35 (of his money) I've got a new ignition switch and a spare key.

I found the shank removal tool handy for when a lanyard got tangled in my clod hopper and snap. Had spare keys and used a flat bladed screwdriver to work the ignition for a couple days until I could get to it.
