Yes, I'm active on NAM & yes, there's plenty of information there.
What I can't find locally is a locksmith to cut/engrave the MINI-style key blade.
I'm not much concerned about the remote key fob, although the security slug may be an issue. It appears that Timpson's can supply & program this, but it's not entirely clear from their website. Timpson's site also won't let me find their stores with the 'specialist' capabilities.
My primary goal is a key that will open the door if I lock my keys inside.
I was hoping someone had hands-on experience!

Just for clarity, I have 2 original MINI keys.
1 - with remote buttons in the fob & the tiny security slug.
2 - no buttons but with the slug.
I also have an aftermarket fob with no internals at all, just a blank blade.
below is info off my diagnostics on key gen function and what needed to add keys, very clearly says diagnostic equipment needed,, search internet key clone service,, so what they do is send your working key to them they will read it and use a eprom reader writer and copy your working key and stick it on a secondhand key.
below diagnostics is screen shots off wow wurth snooper its handy add on to the autocom cdp plus , i've got both systems working off the autocom vci really usefull has gives a lot of data as can see
