Approx $160.00 with remote. Dealer might ask for proof of ownership. Might take atleast a week to get a new one.

Very big car, with a very small engine.

RE: lost my key, key replacement cost?

i lost one of my remote key i still have one left so i need another spare key just in case. over 100 is too much for me. so i will just go with a non-remote key.

are these key blanks on ebay compatible with my 96 s320?

i asked the dealer how much a regular manual key was, and he said $20 for a cut key that matches your car.

i don't know if those keys will work, but maybe this remote key will.

I think you can also replace the switchblade for $20 from an MB dealer.

mbnz230,

these keys on ebay don't get as expensive as 100 bucks. Here is one that was on sale last week, and the winning bid was at $32.

Good luck whatever you do.

There is a chance the remotes on ebay dont work, there wa some coding involved, the keys can be replaced in the remote by driving out the pin. $20 or less for a regular key $125 for a complete working key and remote.

RE: lost my key, key replacement cost?

With most remote keys that you buy u would have to get it synchronised with the car. I got a remote flip key from the stealers a few months ago (AUD$350 - ouch!), and the remote was redundant until it became tuned in.
