    So, I've lost both sets of regular keys and remotes. All I have left is the valet key left. I was going to replace both keys and remotes. Is there any way to avoid having to pay $500 or so to do this?

    How much are the remotes?!?

    I bought 3 keys for my wife's Hyundai at the dealer, they were $10/each.

    Your wife must have an Accent or Elantra or something like that.

    I'm sure the WRX has the keys with the computer chip, hence making them more expensive. I can't possibly see a way around paying the dealer's price for the keys and chalking it up to a learning experience.

    Yep...the keys will be about $100 each, but you can buy the keyfobs on ebay for cheap, usually, and program them yourself.

    Accent GL. Fucking technology, just makes it more expensive for you when you make small mistakes like losing your keys.
