No more 129 keys.

We have just heard in the UK that no more 129 keys are available

We have also heard of no more front blinkers some months back

Yeah, but you can always take vacations to Eastern Europe and have the key programmed/cut for about 40 euro.
Good chance to test your governor on autobahn as well.

remote key fobs, or keys ?? I'd be suprised if no more regular keys are available, and the key for the fobs for at least through 97 can be cut by any locksmith. It's the chip in the remote that must still be kept.

It is the complete key fobs that are no longer sold, without the old key or the eprom being good there is no way to copy anything.

If you lose your key thats it, no more.

I know I can.

You cannot make a late remote key, the blade is easy, if you lost your key there is nothing to copy

I know when I ordered an extra electronic key for my 96 3 years ago I was told at the dealer that they had 190 left. And I suspect that was for not just for SLs but any 1996 USA Mercedes.

I suspect different years have different requirements.

One thing is certain. As time goes on we're going to have to get more creative as to parts replenishment.

I would think that a conventional key can still be ordered by the VIN as any other Mercedes can. Had a friend with a pagoda and lost his only set of car keys. He gives the dealer the Vin and a few days later has a complete set of four keys just as it came from the factory 50 years earlier.

Somehow many of you are missing the boat on this, so your car is in the USA or say the UK and you lost your complete key, how are you going to get the car to Poland.
