Question Replacing spare key

Does anyone recommend where to buy extra spare key fob? When I bought my beast it didn't have a spare key fob. Or am I stuck with going to the stealership to get one?

If you get it from the dealership it'll be all set for your car and basically work. You may need to remove the missing key from the CAS for seat memory and settigns.

There are blanks and programmers from china but that's the hard way , sometimes cheaper isn't worth it.

The other thing is there are only 10 reprogrammed slots for the car so you can only go to the dealership for a key 8 times.
