- May 21, 2013If you have a Smart Key and you want to keep that functionality then you
pretty much need to go to the dealer unless you can find a VERY intelligent
aftermarket key person(they do exist, but I think I've only heard of one
with the smarts and equipment).
That said, IIRC, I bought my key for around $215 and had it programmed for
more like $45. So if your dealer is charging $600, I'd highly advise
