Don't know if the key would be under this or not, nor do I know if the euro chip and immobilizer is the same as U.S. cars.
Well, I emailed a parts guy at the Mercedes dealership in Warsaw. In my broken Polish. Hopefully it makes sense to him and hopefully I get an answer. If he can order one for me, I will test it out and if it works, I will become a "Keyler" for us US guys and start a "bidness"...
