New Master Key from dealer

I wanted another master key (one to stash under the car) and went to the local dealer. I was charged $22, minus my 10% Mercedes Club of America discount for a total of just $19.80. The key nicely fits the ignition and all locks so I'm happy.

I'm also happy I have a 96' and don't need the transponder. I still guard my two original fobs closely. Maybe one day we'll all be able to order new infrared remotes. Mercedes are you listening???

I'm pretty sure the infrared key issue has been resolved, or is at least on the verge of being resolved. There have been a lot of threads on it but most recent info is that Mercedes has the new supply chain in place and would begin taking orders for these keys shortly.
