Key colours

My F30 M Sport will arrive next month, and will have the blue key. It will have coral red leather, and also the Matt coral red line on the dash (fitted by dealer), so I'd prefer to have red keys to match this - does anyone know if it's possible to just swap the actual blue/red key inserts over?

Anybody work out swapping key inserts? The rigidness for this is a bit annoying. In the same vein one can order a black sport line, grey seats (with black stitching), have chrome accents on wood - yet still have a red key and red stitching on the wheel...

Just go to a cell phone kiosk and have them vinyl wrap the blue part. Done.

Do you have comfort access (I'm assuming you do) ... If so, key stays in pocket - who cares. If not...its a key, who cares

You do want to have the blue key if you have a pal with another color. It enables you to place it in front of him / her on the table and go neener neener.

I like this guy. And not just because he's a fellow Coloradan. He makes sense. It's a key.

I'd personally prefer to have a red insert, that's all; having looked into it, it looks like it's not possible, so no biggie.
