Just wondering, why do they sell uncut keys for the BMW on ebay when you have to take it to the dealer anyway to get it cut and programmed to work for your car? Is it cheaper or does the dealer still charge you $300+ for the new key anyway?

tl;dr

Is there any benefit cost wise to buy keys off of ebay or is that a scam/pointless?
the ebay ones are just a shell. the idea is if your diamond key looks all damaged and scratched, you can carry the circuit board over and cut the key it would work.
