Yep, lost my one and only key to the ML430. Called the dealer and she says i have to have my Merc towed there (how they do that when i cant get it out of Park is beyond me). So, i have to have it towed, bring my Title, registration and ID. She said they can order the key will take less than 24 hours and they program it and im good to go.

Certainly there has to be a cheaper way and a way i dont have to tow my freaking vehicle?? Please.

How do you expect the immobilizer to be coded? Its not "Gone in 60 seconds", where you can just order any key for a vehicle and expect it to start. So towing it there is your only solution. Dont want to be a downer, but thats the way the cookie crumbles.
