I'd like to echo Robert Roe's comments. I've gone both routes. Dealer and locksmith. Both were the smae price. And as Robert points out the nickle based blanks don't leave your lock cylinders (driver's door and ignition) full of brass wearing off. Intersetingly enough I've had to replace both afore mentioned cylinders within 6-12 motnhs of each other. When I took them apart, it wasn't a pretty sight. Can't say for a fact there was a dirrect correlation, but I don't go "cheap brass" on the blanks anymore.

Best of luck.
