Also, reprogramming the EWS was never intended to be possible by BMW. Hackers have just figured out how to do it.

BMW's plan was 10 pre-programmed keys in the EWS. If you needed a new key, they had a database of the pre-programmed codes and could just manufacture a new key and send it to you based on the VIN without touching the car.
