Waiting for replacement key from MB... Other options?
I have a nice little 1966 W110 200D that I was planning to drive all summer...Until I lost the only key for it. Went in to the local MB dealer to get a new one from the Vin, and they said it usually takes a couple weeks for the older cars. Well, that was about 6 months ago. Apparently MB is having serious issues getting the old keys made. We've followed up with the dealer about once a month, with no new updates. He even put an "urgent" tag on it in their system.
I'm hesitant to spend $300-$400 for a new steering/lock/ignition bit for it from Ebay.
What would you do? Keep waiting for the cheap key?
