I took delivery

Like the title said I took delivery of a 04 CLK500 today at 11:15am. It was deliver to my house. I'm new to the whole Benz scene. I notice it only came with one remote/key. How much is to get another remote/key from the dealership and can I just give them the vin number?

A new key retails for about $200. You may want to have a look at this thread for a discount.

Should have checked out what you were buying before you got it. Remotes are not cheap. You can try going back to the dealer and demanding another one.

I just paid $160 for one for my '04 CL500. For another $5 you can get just the blade part - handy for in the wallet.

I think all MBs when bought new come with 2 smart keys and at least one valet key. It sounds like the previous owner lost their spare, or for some other reason did not sell it with the car. Maybe I was lucky, but I was given the grouping of keys I just mentioned.

LMAO now, what I did get was a car that had COMAND/NAV but no CDs

I have only 1 smark key (transmitter) and 2 hard key (blade looking things). Just found out the transmitter is Siemens product. I'm going to look into it and try to get it thru Siemens since I work for that company.

I was reading something about the smark key not working at a certain range and there is a camera in the door handle. My smart key only work if I'm only a couple of inches away from the key hole. I read something about some Comm bar and need to update the software?
