You know we have the "Classic Car Center" in Irvine, CA that does the same thing. I've bought parts from them and they gave a discount.
And you don't have to fiddle fart around with euros and VAT!

Oh that's great news! I thought they were unavailable. I'll check it out.

Thanks! I'll give him a call and see what the deal is for ordering the shells, and if they're available.

Per Tom: No keys are currently available and the best case is the end of the year. Shells are not available at all, you have to buy the whole key. I guess it's like the mirror gaskets.

Shells for KR55 remote keys are available on Ebay and are cheap. I've used them before although I did have to do some modification to accommodate the wider OE key blade width.

They look good and function well for those DIY'ers that are not averse to disassembling the remote keys.

They also accommodate RFID chip for DAS X systems used on late W140 & R129. Pics below show rebuilt late R129 key.
