Replacement Key; Online dealer

Since XO's search function is nearly useless (can't use 'and' in a search, can't serach for words less that four letters), you can not find a post with the word 'key' so 'replacement key' will return any post with the word replacement.

NOT HELPFUL.

Anyhow a few months ago somebody posted a link to a legit online dealer that will sell you a key for $40-60 less than a local dealer and i want to find that dealer and buy a key, just wasted over an hour searching and not having any luck.

Hopefully somebody will see this and remember what thread had that post (most likely the 'catch all' thread).

This one is the most popular and offers the key fob for $170 and the plastic valet key for $53.

Is the one OB posted what you're looking for?

You can try using the Google search from the drop down. Or just use this syntax in Google search in Chrome's address bar or on google.com:

replacement key online dealer site:xoutpost.com

Edit: I see you can't find the valet key. Using the above technique for:

part number valet key site:xoutpost.com

Found this which appears not to be the plastic key:

Putting replacement key in quotes will narrow it down to four results currently for the above search.

"replacement key" online dealer site:xoutpost.com

I tried with online dealer in quotes too but that didn't find any exact matches:

"replacement key" "online dealer" site:xoutpost.com

I edited my last post with a possible part number, not sure if you saw that.

I just clicked on the keyless entry transmitter key and then "also bought" at the bottom.
