Thumbs down Lost key

I just bought a 2003 c240 from the auction without a key. I called the dealer and they told me $390 for the key. Is that really the cost of a key and also haven't mentioned the cost of shipping the car to them.

You must be new not only to the forum, but to MB ownership?
Get used to BS coming from lot of stealerships as this is what they do.
New Chrome keys retail about $180 and all you need to order them is showing ownership papers.
Some dealers will give you a discount, some markup >>> all depend who and how you are talking to.
Things gets more complicate if you want to buy a key that replace lost key, so check what they exactly a quoting you?
