Any key cutting services anywhere?

Does anybody know of a locksmith who isn't scared to cut a bmw key near gaithersburg, md? I can't for the life of me find a locksmith who will do it! They either can't mill keys or they say to go to the dealership. Do I really have to go to the dealer or is there someone who will cut my key for me?

I work at a dealership(Ford), we have a side mill machine. It can duplicate or cut by code. I am in York, Pa. I can cut them for you if you can figure out how to get the blanks to me.

The BMW keys are (or look) the same as the new Fiesta keys. The key machine has the option for BMW keys. I haven't tried and myself but have cut plenty of other side mill keys on it.
