Here is a rub. You can order key with license and proof of ownership but to pick it up vehicle has to be present. They will no release the key until it operates the car. In my case sales associate at MB dealer hit trunk unlock and when it popped open handed me the key.

YA , new key needed - I reattached the COIL on the SMT board inside the key with a silver epoxy solder joint, but after reassembly , the IR test failed , and the key did not unlock the steering column nor allow turning the ignition. I have an 01 E55 , so i hope they can still accommodate owners after 18 years...
