Default Lost keys

Well, I lost one set about two years ago, a customer grabbed them off the counter at work I'm assuming on accident and either didn't know where they picked them up at or didn't care, ofcourse this person didn't buy that day so I had no way to get a hold of them . I've been meaning to buy a spare key , and ofcourse now I lost my only key left , this time I really don't know what happened, I was driving her and then got in a friends car and I think it must of fell out of my pocket (no keychain or remote ) so this is very possible.

Anyways has anyone had to buy a key from dealership and/or an alarm remote , what was the turn around time and maybe a cost estimate , even if the key turns up i need a remote and spare key so any advice or experience on this subject is greatly appreciated

Since I work at a dealer. I see keys get ordered quite often. 7 to 10 business days turn around. To get to California. Could be less depending where you live. A key is roughly 170$ I believe

That Im not sure. Honestly if I was you i would get a different set of keys, locks and ignition tumbler. Cheaper and less of a headache than having the car stolen.

Thanks again ! . Ok , I got the keys ordered , they wound up being $54 each. The $170 key is for newer cars with the built in fob , very cool, but they wouldn't order that one for me . I just thought I would let people know incase they need a key. One more question ., I need new fobs , they want 130, but I can buy them online for under $100 . Would they program my remotes or get mad because I didnt buy them there and any idea on the programming cost ? Also I'm thinking about just buying an aftermarket alarm that plug and plays , by the time I pay for 2 remotes and programming I'm in a decent non oem alarm . Any thoughts ?

Thats nice to know that they are that cheap. I always see the new ones ordered and no e36s.
