oh nice! those look really good. Did you manage to program the remote? I am also worry that no one will cut the keys. That is one thing stopping me from ordering it

I have yet to find a place willing to cut it...well one guy who came in at work said he could do it for 20.00 but I never have time to get over to Tiverton...its no where near where I live/work and I have a 6 day work week with sundays being my only time off :-( quality is amazing and programming seems straight foward havent dont it yet because i wanted it cut first

That key looks great! That is the one off the eBay link posted a few pages back? I think I may order one, I just have to find a place to get it cut.

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.
Thanks man! I'll be ordering this key this week!

I noticed one of the buttons look depressed. How is the fob holding up? I know it's hard to tell if you can't actually use it, but is the button stuck?

So your original 2 keys still work, right?

There is no reason why they shouldn't work, you don't de-program the first two programming a third key generally.
