    $199 for both, pretty decent condition, might have one small chip on tip of large one. I sold a very nice pair recently for $175 shipped.

    Red were used into e12, e24 models, Bert knows more. Then BMW switched to green.

    i think Coupeguy reproduced them once, but i don't think he continues to do so ... one and done (i believe). i don't remember what he sold them for, maybe 100 for the pair

    Say...you can order a key cylinder and key direct from BMW. I did for my 72 bavaria. They then had 95 left.
    I ordered in may 2018

    yes, during the same period BMW made small gray screwdrivers for the 2002 and 320i. Porsche also used the Heyco red handled screwdrivers ... that has driven up the value and scarcity of the RHS

    They had 96 when I ordered so probably 95 left or so.
    You can either pay a lot more to be and have your new lock and key made to the codes found on your doors and trunk lock...or just have them send one off the shelf.
    After that if you want all key locks the same there is a place in california I know that can rekey all cylinders to be the same. Let me know.

    I had my large red handled screwdriver stolen during a car show. I got one in great shape from LJI for 75 dollars, was about 3 years ago. Wonderful thing was I was at our "Idiotfest" which is a NE e24 outing. When I told this story, 2 people said they had an extra screwdriver and would give it to me for free. That's the BMW classic crowd...glad to be a part of it!.
