Take your vin and proof of ownership to the dealer and they will cut you a new key.

If you stop and think about it, it’s literally not worth your time to get on TBOT every day and argue about politics.

27 bucks last year, got it in 48h. It will be the small head 740 style though. Done in NJ likely.

Just to let you know.

I tried to order a key for my 240 via VIN, and it showed up just as a blank, and had to be cut by a key cutter locally.

I'm not sure if that was just on the lazy part of my parts department.

I called my local dealer on the phone (I have no relationship with them). The gave me the key code over the phone, I took that to a closer locksmith, and had a key in 10 minutes.

Worked perfectly 1st time.
