Mark@RMK is probably the forum's leading expert on MB keys and key related issues

Good luck...

so i reckon the answer is NO you cant reprogramme keys using STAR. in fact (im sure Mark will correct me if im wrong) i dont think they can be reprogrammed AT ALL without changing a chip on the circuit board inside the key itself

They can be reprogrammed...but not by the OP using the system he has. I'm getting a spare made...for £60.

I need a spare key too. Where "other than MB" can i get spare key made?

I beleive MB charges £250 for a key!?

Also does anyone know if older cars (before 2006) can get the newer keys (chrome casing)

Thanks

New keys from mercedes all come in the chrome case now, other than early cars circa 2001/2003 with keyless go.

Thats good to hear because the black plastic looking key doesnt do the CLS any justice ;-)

Now where to order keys, should i go to MB or try Mark above on this thread? I beleive they charge £160 and MB prices are £225.

I actually only got 1 key with the car so deffo need a spare!

Mark is very good, so why not. Not nice with only 1 key.

Malc..he needs my car and is 200 miles round trip so the saving from the MB key will go on fuel costs on the beast!


I will give him a bell though as it is something i would like to replace at some point!
