1988 190e key replacement...HELP!!!!!

I lost my keys, to my Mercedes 1988, 190e. I know dumb. Anyway, I took my title and documents to the dealership and got a replacement. The key could only open the driver's door nothing else. I thought this was strange because the last key (the spare one) I had was the original, never been used and that key operated everything. I could understand if replacement key didn't work in the ignition because of wear and tear but nothing else, especially the passenger door I never used a key on the that side. Anyway, I went back to Benz and they tried to charge me for another one and I said "get lost" I kicked up up a fuss and they then refunded my money. I'm going to try another dealership tomorrow. has anyone gone through this or has any suggestions? By the way I had this problem with a land rover discovery and I went back to the dealership and they cut another for free and it worked perfectly.
