    Keyless - what to do?

    I'm considering buying a 2002 450 but there is no key for it (lost/stolen in a burglary). If I buy it, a blank key that can be cut or pre-cut key from MB should be easy enough. What is needed to programme the car to the new key? (Transporting the car anywhere is not a viable option).

    MB Star, WinStar, and I believe a Delphi diagnostic unit can program keys (The first two definitely).

    I tried my Delphi on my 2001 car & I can confirm no key coding facility that I can find.

    Order blade from dealer. Fob on EBay. Get someone with Star to code car to fob.

    If I buy it it will be approx 50 miles from Banchory.
    Do you have the kit to code a key to said car? If so, what from the car would need to be taken to you to do it?

    I have what it takes. Hate going to the dealer handing over hard earned money for little or nothing in return.
