very cool and definitely going to pursue this but need to spare key and fob before sending one off.

There was thread for this X5M key fob retro fit over at F30 forum. The guy was from Shanghai, China and saying there are LOTS of replica keys on market. Most of them are cheaply made junks.
He did offer retrofit program with high end replica key.

How is the quality of key?
Does it feel like OEM keys?
Weight, button feel. (ALL the buttons work including panic)

The key is of high quality. Buttons feel excellent and the weight is there. It is not all plastic like the Supra keys. It is legit. When I get home, I will take some pics. Drove the hooptie today.

Just had this done in Boston, they had to pull the module from the car and upgraded to x5m style per above, the total price all in was $250.00. Feel free to reply to the thread or pm me for more info but not sure how beneficial it would be as you do have to pull the module (i think it was called dme) but no destroying of the original key. I believe the companies that destroy the original key actually remove the chip and resolder into the new key which i was advised may not be ideal.

Can you advise which company did this?

I would be happy to pay $250 for just a second original key without even upgrading to the newer style

He is a local enthusiast who happened I believe also did engineering at a local college, he upgraded to the key as in the photo above for the $250 so be sure to ask about price per style key:
