    You will need £225, a Passport, 1 utility bill, V5 and a trip to your nearest Mercedes dealer, it takes about 5 days as the come from Germany,,, if they ask you for a birthmark for identity, just say no ;):D

    I take it that the second key has been lost or retained by the previous owner.

    You can get the missing key "deregistered" from the car security system so that it will no longer work. If purchasing a new key from the dealership then I would enquire about the cost of having this done.

    Many good dealers will do this for no cost or any indie with STAR,,, you are right and one should get this done if you buy a car with just one key.

    They will plug it into STAR and delete all keys other than the 2 that you will be using, if they do want to charge you, ask how much as any indie will do it cheaper

    I wonder if you have to live in Spain to be able to get keys for 50€?

    Could I get someone to order some for me when they are staying in the country?

    50€ = £40.50 at the moment
