Programming Mazda 3 (2008) key fob

Anyone know someone other than dealers who can program a key fob? I just picked up a Mazda 3 (2008) and it came with just one set of keys so I know I can't do the DIY method (at least what I've seen is that).

thanks,

Try a locksmith, different places charge different prices, PM me if you need a price.
Do you have the blank with transponder already?

Thanks, haven't picked up a blank and transponder yet - think I will order from eBay/Amazon but heard that Canadian 2008s are slightly different than US ones so confirming that first. Will PM you once I get that.

Be careful on amazon and eBay, I've had people come in with 3rd party blanks that can't be programmed by the coding machines in store.
