I have just picked up a '92 W124 and only got one ignition key. (as ever the guy is looking for the others...)

Do I need to get an extra one from an MB dealer or do the normal key cutting places do them?

If it's a key like this

A new cute key with the chrome star on it is £54.71 inclusive. Not too bad really.

I had to pay an extra £24.68 on top of that to cancel a stolen ignition key:mad:

Keep in mind that "aftermarket" keys tend to wear out the locks much faster..

I had problems with both the doorlock as well as the ignition lock on my car - in the end neither worked. When I tried to use a genuine key (the only one I had) instead of the one I had cut later I managed to squeeze a couple of months more out of them. I have now replaced all the locks with a complete new from Mercedes lock-set which was only 50% more expensive than ONE lock made for my car from Mercedes.

Only available from the main dealer. You will need proof of ID and the V5C. Dont be tempted by the ones on ebay. They cannot be reprogrammed despite what they might tell you.

For what its worth theres a guy on fleebay that can code keys for Mercs as long as you still have one key present. Personally I wouldn't want anybody apart from MB to have a copy of my car key.

Depends on the guy and the tools and how much access to the car you allow (read circuits from EIS etc.). I would not encourage owners to use these services but owners should not close their eyes on this approach.

Lots of Mercedes!
For an early car they are only less than a tenner each from the dealer.... Work first time too.

Standard keys for a W124 are £21 these days - used to be £11 for ages , but a price rise a couple of years back doubled it to that outrageous level .

That's just upsetting me, I've got to buy another soon as I only have one. Been putting it off as I'm not keen on parting nearly £200 for a key /
