Mercedes Keys

I recently lost my keys to my 2011 E class and 2013 C class both are AWD with keyless go most places are charging between 380 and 420 per key. Has anyone had any luck getting a deal or a cheaper price please let me know about your experiences?

No deals.

The only source for replacement keys (and that's what you want, since it will disable the current ones you lost, rather than additional keys, which would leave the old ones active) is the dealer.

And dealers charge however much they like, and some like it more than others. So call around to every dealer in traveling distance (you have to go twice, once with ownership documents and ID so you can order the keys and then again to pick them up) and get a turnkey (no pun intended) quote. There is likely an additional charge to disable the original keys.

I don't know how you "lost" four keys, but it may be that you have some insurance policy (homeowners sometimes does) that may cover part or all of the loss.

Good luck.

Sounds like keyless cost a lot extra or you have special DC addition.
Even the most expensive quote I got in San Francisco area was $270 for chrome knob .
I bought the key for $180 at newer dealer on suburbans.
