Pretty sure they are except for the inscription to open and close the top remotely, this would not hinder the use of the case.

I would contact those people or check with BMW Dealer.

I thought the CA and non-CA keys were different sizes, though?

The only thing I can add is that my 2011 335i and my 2012 Z4 share the same exact size key.

My '11 128i and my '09 Z4 are the same size too. I think the keys are pretty standard.

the newr '13 X3 has a totally different key though. it doesnt even look the same.

That looks like a case for the larger keys found in the 5 series and larger. I also believe that the 2012 and above 3 series has the redesigned key. I don't know / don't think its the same as the larger keys, but it shares the same sloped tip that appears to be on the key in the picture you posted.

My 10 335i and 09 Z4 have the same size keys. But those look like F30 key cases.

My 2013 Z4 has the same size as my wife's 2010 3 Series, but my 2011 X3 has a much larger key.
