      I'm not clear what a NHW11 key is. Our 2007 Prius is a Touring with all possible factory options .
       
      [Actually the mechanical (door) key for Prius is fairly convention double-cut. the TCH is the internal lazer cut style....

      >>As I recall the pricing 29 months later: Dealership retails that key for $315 (we 'stole' one for 232.20), the special emergency door key for another hundred. Programming the main key to the car was $100 (we got a brother-in-law deal on that for nothing--except driving a 70-mile round-trip to another dealership), lazer-cutting the special door key another $100 (Pop a Lock did that for $50 if we went to their place... We managed a short-cut or two but this is no $35 deal!
