Want to buy: Duplicate key for island W209
My friend has a W209 and is worried about the possibility of losing the only key that the car came with. Hasn't happened, but he worries. We're on an island, so there's no dealer here for buying a duplicate key, and every dealer I've talked to won't do it without having the owner and the car physically present.
My friend wants to buy a duplicate key from a locksmith who could make one from his VIN, without needing the car physically present. He is willing to provide any documentation that he's the legal owner of the car, copies of the title and registration, pictures of his license/passport, pictures of himself with the car, whatever.
My firend is a locksmith, so he knows about keys, but he doesn't do any electronic programming.
The car is a 2004 W209 (US-spec) that I bought here on Benzworld, then later sold to my friend.
Please let me know what you can do and how much you charge. Thanks.
