Since you're in Raleigh I would suggest going to CW Performance in Apex , depending on where you are in Raleigh, I got a brand new key for my ML320 from him for I believe around 180 plus 30 to program, but don't quote me on that. I got to him instead of Mercedes since he warranty's his work and does it for a lot cheaper. You should give him call about, it might be worth your while!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.
