You'll need a tool called AK90+ to do the coding!
So let me get this straight:

330 DME
330 IKE
325 keys
325 EWS
AK90+ for coding the 325 EWS with 330 vin

Yup. Use the AK90 to pull the mileage from your 330 key, and update it on your 325i key, as long as it's within 100km/62mi of the DME/IKE it will adjust itself and you're good as gold
