Your local dealer can order one for you if you provide the VIN and proof
of ownership. We ordered one for our S500C a while back through our
local dealer in Anchorage. Didn't know they were $140.00 for the
electronic version. Good grief.
Also, we recently bought a preowned CL500 and the dealer (Fletcher Jones
MB of Chicago) wouldn't provide a second key but he did offer to order
one for us at "his cost", $125.00.
Finally received the floor mats for this car by the way. They had
removed them before they shipped it to us.
Only took two complaints to MB Customer Service and six months of emails
and phone calls. Ahhhh, Fletcher Jones!

had to insist Fletcher Jones of Chicago supply a CD changer magazine
because it was missing as well. They took one out of another pre-owned

A 2000 CLK uses an EIS ignition switch. Only the samrt key will turn it. The
metal blade key will
only get you in the door!
And keys are no longer done in Baltimore. The operation has moved to Fort Worth.
As far as I know, the flat wallet key is not available as a replacement part. I
have not been able
to order any for any car I have Starmarked where I work. It was key #3. If your
trunk has a lighted
green button inside, there is no valet key available. The valet option had to go
by-by when US
federal law required trunks to be escapeable from if someone locked you in it.
