Getting a Key Cut

I've called around, and most dealerships would charge about $45~$80 just for a Key Cut. I don't need to get it programmed, just needs a cut.

(2005, 7th Gen, Honda Accord)

Are there any specific/certain places that can cut the key without going w stealerships?

Thanks !

The dealerships cut from a key code, machine is HUGE money hence the large cost to cut from key code. Other places just duplicate your existing key.

Yeah, these guys should be able to cut any key.

Is your key like this:



Or like this?



The first one should be more standard. They can still do the second type, but I think it costs more. I got my Lexus key done last year by them and it cost like $35 or something.

Thanks man. My TL key has been abused for 5 years, blade is loose and scratches everywhere. And the buttons.... Time to replace one. I've bought another TL Key & TL Kep rep from ebay. Any hook ups?
