Give the dealer the keys or no?

Sold the car and still have the second set of keys...

I would say hands down to give (ship) them to the dealer, but when I bought the new car from them, I only have one set. Over $250 for new key and fob.

I'm most likely going to send them to the dealer (and pay for the shipping) just because I know that it's not going to make a difference at all to them if they have em. But to the next owner, it'll be nice.
Plus I have the little touch-up paint Ford gave when puchasing new cars. I had to buy mine for $8, which wasn't too bad.

But what do you think???

hrm I guess if they wanted to pay for the shipping I'd consider sending it but since it doesn't appear they really did you any favors after spending a lot of money I don't think I would feel obligated to do them any favors. I'd be they could get a new key for your old car for little or no cost anyway.

And see this may have something to do with me wanting to send it
1: what if it were me buying the car next?
2: I got a realllllly good deal.

Got the GT model and they thought it was sport (like $2,000 dif)

Be a nice guy. The world needs more people to do the right thing. You can't use the key anyway. Can you use the FOB for your new car?

Doubt it. I'm about to go to the post office now. But keep voting. I love polls!

Maybe I shouldh've put this in the "polls" section or whatever?

Shipped. I thought about ^ that and I don't know how hard it would be to find someone like that.

Is there a way to go off the vin? I know that the carfax won't show addressed. Just that it was personal or buisness.
