dealer item - must be ordered obviously...With that said, some dealers are not willing to make the effort to get/order these and may tell you they can't do it.Not sure if this is available for the mini...

I've never seen one that is a carbon fiber one, but they do have one that looks kinda like a dull finish carbon fiber. This key is a wallet key in case you lose the original. They also have a valet key that will not open the trunk or dash. These must be special ordered from the dealership because of EWS (an embedded chip in the key specific for your car that acknowledges the car isn't being hot wired).

You can't get one that will work in the ignition. It will only open the door. To work in the ignition it must have a coded chip that communicates with the car's EWS anti-theft system.
