E36General discussion and technical help for (E36) 1992-1999 3 series cars. 318, 323, 325, 328.
My grandpa has had many a bimmer. His 86' 535 had a "gold" key. The reason it looked gold was (as Komodo said) oxidation, and years of use. The silver finish wore off and the metal underneath oxidized. His E46 that he currently drives has a silver key. I guess if he kept it for 13 years like he did with his 535, the key might turn silver. However, among the six bimmers our family has owned since the 535, none of them have had gold keys (except for the previously described)

Just a simple point, I don't know much about this, however once you install the chip you will need to earth the ECU case when you first start the engine. That is if you plug in the unit prior to fitting it back in it's hole, ground the case against the body whilst a second person starts the engine. Worth a try!!!!!
