Hi Eddie, I am not a locksmith but have an account with the two largest Willowbrook Locksmith suppliers and I am not limited in what I can purchase from them in anyway.It will be difficult for you to get a copy of that key without the authorised person's permission unless you can buy the blanks and have a key cutting machine.

The website is actually hightechlocksmiths.com and they claim they only work with businesses, but I am going to give them a try anyway.

Wish I'd seen this sooner. Lost 2nd key and dealer wants $495 for key and programming. What a ripoff!

www.jeffhaasmazda.com overcharges when they know you are in a bind

Locksmiths in Plantation charged me $129 for programing the key, remote, and immobilizer and $247 for the key. Total of $400 for the whole thing.

Hey sell uncut keys on ebay. There are some local lock smiths that will be able to cut them. Not sure about the programming though.

Following up on post numbers 10 and 11... one of the keys to our 2010 M3iT had an unfortunate incident and was exploded by a certain young lady's boot. It was a very accidental yet rather violent occurrence. Once all the pieces were swept, vacuumed, and scraped from the front passenger area, and also the rear, the driveway, the adjacent street, and methinks the pool in the back of the neighbor's yard, it was determined that both the transponder and the electronics were not only in our possession, but also intact and fully functional. Unfortunately, I had already ordered a pair of replacement remote cases, but only to replace the buttons on the 4-button remotes since they had faded with the passage of time. I had read of this "own three keys to ensure the ability to program another in the case you lose one" practice, so I ordered another whole remote and keyhead case (no transponder or other electronics) which included an uncut key, and I ordered a standard uncut key with transponder as well. I placed the innards of the fatally wounded flip key including the elusive and bewildering transponder into their new habitat, and went in search of a proprietor of a rare place called a "locksmith" shop.
Once I found a local brick&mortar place - not a mobile purveyor of toothy, ridged openers waiting eagerly to rush to my aid and relieve me of somewhat indecent amounts of my hard-earned gains - it took but a few moments to have these standard, rather mundane items whittled into a form the pleased the tumblers in the ignition and driver's door locks. It was then onward to...the gas station! where, OBVIOUSLY, I filled the tank. What else would I do there?
Well, there was one other thing. In the course of waiting for the tank to fill and after recording the mileage, fuel price, station type, etc, etc, in both paper and electronic formats, I decided to program the third key, right there at the pump.
I realize the instructions suggest inserting each key, turning it, and leaving it for approximately five seconds, but (notwithstanding this post) I can be an impatient person. I'm rather sure I took only about three seconds per key, and after the new key was inserted, inhaled a considerable amount of atmosphere, held it, and wondered what WAS taking so long for the tank to fill. Once the attendant finished his duties (self-service is actually a misdemeanor in NJ) I turned the new key to the start position, and amazingly, she did. In total the programming of the new transponder key was accomplished in under fifteen seconds and done from memory of a YouTube video.

Thank you. Although not the first owner, I'm sure an owner's manual was included with the car.
