Ordering Keys

I recently ordered some extra keys from the local M-B dealer for my '85 300D. These were ordered off of the VIN (the title and the VIN on the car both match). The keys I received do NOT fit any of the locks; not the doors, ignition, or trunk. They are too wide and just won't even enter the locks.

The two keys I currently have appear as though they're factory-issued M-B keys; they have the star logo, the Huf script, and are all-steel (as opposed to the brass knockoffs).

The technicians at the shop where I have my cars serviced (themselves former employees of the dealership where the keys were ordered) do not believe that the car was re-keyed.

Does anybody have any idea what the deal is here? Mistake on the dealer's service department? Modified car? Where can I get keys that'll fit?
I'm wanted in four states, but it's all good. Got me a new driver's license and a sweet new pickup. V-8, Baby, five-hundred horsepower. Oh, and four of them mudflaps with the naked ladies on them. GRRRRRRRR, MAMASITA!!! And the best part is, it's all free!!! Yeah, well, for me at least!!!! HA-HA-HA-HA-HA!!!!
