Hello everyone, first time posting. I have a question about keys. Fellow wants to sell me a 1997 e320 sedan. The problem is, he lost the key fob portion of the key assembly. 1997 still has the metal part of the key to it and that is all he has, the metal part. Does this car have to be towed out to a dealership to get a key made? There are no issues with the title. It is clear and no lien or anything like that. I asked a local locksmith and he said it has to go to dealership, the owner says so too. I'm just trying to avoid a 40 mile tow. Thank you.
