Mercedes-savvy locksmith in Portland

I thought I would pass on what I learned in the course of chasing down ignition lock problems on my 240D... the go-to shop for old-school Mercedes key work is AA Express Locksmith:

AA Express

They can re-key your ignition lock tumbler to match your VIN number, reportedly; when I talked to them they said that they stock all the disks that are used within the cylinder. Price to re-key a Mercedes tumbler is roughly $25 to $45.

I can't say whether they are the place to go for routed keys or transponder keys; you're on your own there.

- '79 240D - engine swap complete! Engine broken in! 28-31 mpg! Lovin' the ride!
- '86 190D (W201-126) - 2.5 NA engine, 5 speed, cloth interior, manual climate controls, 33-34 mpg (sold to forum member).
