newbie key question help please

Dear benzeworld
I'm a newbie and just got myself a v230 auto on an s plate
I got it on ebay and am devestated to see it comes with a HUGE flip key, now this is a major problem for me as I keep my key in my shoe due to disability, what I want to know is can I get a normal size key cut that will unlock the doors and start the car or has it got an immobiliser chip in it? can the likes of timsons do it? if not I am stuffed and have just spent a fortune on a car I can't use,,
also I was reading the hand book and it said there is a button in the boot to lower the suspension and put it back up, but I can't find the darn button, the car seems to get lower when parked a few hours is this normal or an air leak?
thanks guys
Amazingfeet - YouTube will explain my key issue
