It appears purchasing the whole unit and having the new key cut and programmed by a locksmith is the most expensive option. However, it also seems to be easier, less personal effort required choice and would much rather go that route versus converting a fixed key to a switchblade key. Estimate the pricing difference to be between $40-60 contingent primarily on the locksmith's key-cutting fee.
