Been reading a lot of posts. Many say us normal people can program our own fobs. None work for me. Most, if not all, of the posts start with a genuine BMW fob then show how they programmed it. Trouble with that is BMW genuine fobs are already programmed using your VIN so all they need is to be activated.
So the question I have is, can us normal people program our own fobs?

I am in that same boat. Found 2 issues. One, do not buy the budget sounding fob as it likely uses a different frequency. Two, you are correct these fobs cannot be programmed without a very expensive tool and, as previously noted, the correct fob.
The "programming" steps I have found are indeed just an activation procedure.
