Hi, you cannot swap the key styles ie upgrade. Also you cannot buy shells from MB just full keys pre-coded to your car and at a terrible price. I would suggest buying a replacement shell from ebay or similar where there are loads of MB keys (all types) sold as "key fobs" and then swapping the guts as above. If there is anybody enterprising out there you can buy shells of different types (MB and other makes) from a company in China (Beijing Autokey Transponder Tec Co., Ltd. - Key shells, key transponders, locksmith tools) Then perhaps sell them singularly on ebay at a cost +say 15%. It would be a nice little home based business. But to make it a sensible price you have to buy 100+.
