I was told u canns1 ot order a random key and have it programmed. I asked the dealer. They said it's a common misconception. Ppl buy spare keys on ebay and such only to find out they have to have it ordered from Germany.

If the dealer is able to program the FOB from eBay to your car (which I don't think they can), you still don't have full functionality of the FOB unless you change the key blade as well. That key blade is cut VIN specific. Why go through all the trouble? I know a second key from the dealer is not cheap, but that's the only way I'll go.
