Default Getting an STI key blank cut in Austin

I know some people in Austin have been trying to get some STI key blanks done (cos they ran into the same problem I did according to my dealership).

Most people wont touch them because they think the entire key shaft is titanium (despite telling them it's just nickel steel). If you're having a problem getting it cut, I can recommend someone. PM me for the details.

Just got mine done - cost me $45 - but I'd lost a spare key anyway, so I figured what the hell.

Cheers

I got mine done for free at the dealership I used to work at(central Subaru) any dealership should cut it for free if you have the key code, which they should be able to get from the invoice of your vehicle.

Nope - both of the dealerships I tried gave me some smack about it not fitting in their key cutter. And the place they did recommend - wouldn't do it anyway - because "it's titanium".

They tried cutting a generic for me to get me by - but even that didn't work.

Ah well

Hey man if you want to pay shipping send it to me with your key code and I will cut it at Central Subaru for free. The same goes for anyone else who needs an STI key cut

Home Depot cut mine, it wouldn't fit any of their "molds" but they popped it in there and it worked anyway.
