I went to a locksmith shop and they cut it for me. However, they said they wouldn't guarantee the cut. Yes, it will not fit correctly on a double side machine they use, but I removed the key from the assembly and it fit. Furthermore, they did do a lot of hand filing to make it right. That was a year ago and still my main key and never had a problem. You should see the dealer dudes look at it, like crows seeing something shiny. Search my name for links about how to program both the key and the remote part. Was a pain but worth never having a key tearing your pants or poking you all day.
