    Someone said replacement keys would be pretty expensive...Would they be cheaper to get online or direct from Japan?Anyone know? Thanx

    Seen people paying around $250 for the replacement... Not sure if you can get it online anywere, I think the immobilizer chip ID from the key needs to be entered in the ECU somehow. Might require some dealer equipment, but there is a chance it-s just some sort of woodoo-like manipulation with the keys, doors and keyless entry buttons.

    IF is300 keys cost 120$ for replacement, i doubt the tC costs $250.

    My dealership said $225 for the remote key and $40 for the plan jane key.So all the more insentive to keep track of them keys thats why u are given 2 remotes and 1 standard key.

    Sounds like another way for the dealerships to bend you over! It can-t cost that much to make the keys so why charge so much!

    Wow those keys are expensive. I better get my spare back from the girlfriend.

    From what i was told there also so expensive cause they have certain chips that are made into the key for security reasons.

    yeah....those chips are for the -engine immobilizer- security feature..........keeps pple from picking your ignition i believe
