Price of a replacement Smart key 06, C230

I just purchased a Mercedes Benz CPO , C230 sport, however they misplaced one of the Smart key, so they ordered me a new one, it is actually much nicer than the original key with chrome around the Fob. I'm sort of curious how much these things cost, since the dealer had to get a new spare?

i dont know about the c class but i know that in the ML they only make 4 keys per vehicle, they are expensive and have to be programed by the dealer only ($350) you dont get or loose your 4 keys and it is time to change the car because you will have to change all the security computer and locks..... i think its cheaper to go to space in russia!

Hey thanks for the price, I kind of heard it was $350, of course the dealers can get it cheaper, it was ordered Monday, arrived Wednesday morning. So if it is 4 keys per vehicle, then I think I am down to one last chance. The new key is inside my fire proof safe (all my 4 vehicles ) have the spare remotes secured)

It's not quite bad. They have to change the computer that has the ignition key slot in it. The cost is still over $1000. Also, I think they can do eight keys - four 'replacement' and four 'additional' keys. Could be wrong on that, however.

Wow I guess the dealers like to make some spare change in their own pockets as well cause mine was 150 and they gave me the second one free since im such a good customer lol

I never ask how much, $150 or $200 seems correct, since they are an electronic key absolutely no machining required. the switch blade type smart key that is laser made is probably the one for $350. I also have a 96 C220 with a switch blade key and an infra red FOB, I do have both original keys, these I don't want to misplace
