Lost key to my 1984 500sel
I've got a bit of a situation here. I lost the keys to my 1984 500sel (grey market). I went to the local dealer with my Id and Vin, after a quick search they told me they did not have a key code and my only option is to go to a locksmith.
I went to the locksmith they recommended, however he told me he would charge me $600 plus to make a key off the tumbler (door lock). I called a few other locksmiths for price options and all said they could not make a key.
Am I really screwed here in having to fork out that much to the locksmith or has anyone know of another option?
Thanks in advance.
