Default Can anyone recommend a good Key Fob Replacement

Hey guys,

Iím looking to add a remote start to my A5 by Fortin. I had it on my A8L and was awesome. since it uses the factory key and all you need to do is press lock 3xís to turn off/on it Requires you to give up your spare because it needs to remain in the car at all times.

I had an Infiniti factory key fob replaced earlier last year but canít find the contact recommended by the dealer. Hoping someone can recommend a reliable automotive locksmith that they dealt with.

the guy came to my house, provided a factory key fob, programmed and cut the actual key on the spot and left. I paid like a third of the price.

any help would be much appreciated. Iím in Orange County Irvine area

I have seen OEM one advertised on eBay for my car (2018 Q5) for about 30 bucks. Not sure how you would get it programed but they have instruction videos on line. Also, the ACE hardware store near me (In Florida) advertises that they can sell and program one, but I don't think it is OEM.

You might want to try Californiakeyslocksmith.com They are located in Tustin. I was able to get my TT MK1 programmed/coded last year.
