All new smart keys from the dealer are of the smart key type. You will HAVE to buy from the dealer- don't expect an ebay key to work b/c it won't. New MB policies requires title/proof of registration as well as drivers license and the owner must be present for them to order a key. Then theres a couple papers to sign in order to get the key. There's no programming required- get the new key and put it in the ignition it'll auto upload/transfer any important info.

So as far as gone in 60 seconds where "inside" dealer workers ordered new keys for thieves to steal cars....those days are gone. lol

can i buy a newer key from the dealer and get it to work with my car?

You need to have the SmartKey system in your car... unfortunately you are stuck with the flip style key.
