Not sure if this is the right place to post this but i know getting replacement keys made can be very costly.

I called around several ACE hardwares which can sell you the blank key cut and programmed for a 2004 element for $40.

However for a 2005 the prices were pretty wild (180+) and apparently only the dealership can do this programming. I went to the Honda dealership on 10 S Van Ness in San Francisco, and they made me a brand new key, blank, cutting and programming in 10 mins from walking in the door till leaving for only $47 out the door which works to both start the car and doors obviously. I have a 2005 Element EX with an F stamped on the key.

This may be a great option for anyone local to the bay that need a spare set of keys like me since I bought mine used and only got one key!

Mod's feel free to move this post if needed.

really? They have great service. award winning in fact. but their parts department never match internet price with me. they say it's the city and they can't give it away that cheap.
When I cross reference them with palo alto, Sf is almost twice as much. I need to bring you along when I get stuff there. I'll be like, "but i brought him, now give me the better price" lol.
