OK, Bobby, here's your chance to clear up another Internet myth: I've been told by dealers and riders that placing one BMW (EWS chip) key too close to another BMW key (car or MC) will screw up the keys and render their RF chip(s) useless for starting one or both vehicles.

Is this true, or is it just a case of two keys on the same ring interfering with each other's signal when trying to start a vehicle? Thanks in advance...
