I have really nice ones, nearly new.

You might consider first getting a 2nd one at dealer, you'll sleep better.

Yea I probably should have a spare. Last time I checked (about 2 years ago) it was going to cost me $375. Ill call around and see what it is now.

Hello, I just received my key back from David p. I was so relieved to find that it works 100% my turn around time was extremely fast. I am so glad I reached out to him and he came through for me. If I was to do this swap again I would definitely go back to David he hooked me up.

On a side note I am debating getting the key redone the chrome key I have is a different size than the old one. I'm sure it can be done. Thanks again for the awesome service and perfect communication!

Glad it worked out. I don't always do them this fast, but MS asked as he was flying somewhere so I rushed it.

The metal key inside is indeed a different size, you may find a locksmith who can make it for you, or it can be ordered from dealer.

Hello long time lurker, just joined bc of a key issue. Hopefully I am not late to this party but I see a lot of happy members in this thread lot of happy members with the work you have done. Our car has both a chrome key (3.0) and a black keyfob (2.0). We always used the chrome key but now it no longer works to start the car or unlock the doors even though batteries are good and red led lights up. The black keyfob works but is already damaged. I ordered a new functioning chrome key through the dealer which should arrive any day. If you are still doing this service, do you think you could get the black key internals to work in the chrome key case? Not sure if my old chrome key is hopeless now, even if it is would be interested in having black key --> chrome key conversion, like you have done before. Crossing my fingers that you are still doing this. Thank you! (Low post count and am unable to send a PM)

I have a chrome key for my 2015 GLA250, it doesn't have keyless go (sigh) but it has most other features I like. I'm told that if I want to put a remote start in, I will have to sacrifice one key. So I have two questions:

1. Are all chrome keys basically the same, and fit into the key recess or are there year/model specific designs?

2. Can a chrome key I buy used be reflashed to my key code or is it a one time deal?

I made it through the winter, but yeah... since the car says outside in my driveway all winter, it would've been nice to have a remote start.

Mike
