GM moved to a system that reads key height to confirm the proper key is actually in the ignition.

MB has used a metal key with a RFID chip since 97 on cars that didn't yet get the smart key.

While in theory it possible to cut a key from a walk by picture, there are easier ways to take a car.

That doesn't remotely sound like the correct price. Have you called the dealer and spoken to them directly?

Exactly. Did this for a 300SE I owned.

Classic Center is super helpful.
