Key fob replacement: best place

What's a best site to get a new key fob for a 2011 wk2?
I've been searching and I've found sites but I also hear that most sites offer sub par keys that'll stop working in a few months. I don't want to spend 120+ dollars on something to have it clock out on me or wear and tear that fast...

Re: Key fob replacement: best place

I buy mine on eBay. I make sure its a very reputable seller, and that the deal isn't "to good to be true."

I then pay the $tealership to program them for me. They always give me a lecture about how "you didn't buy this key online, did you?" However, I haven't had a bad one yet, they always program correctly.

Re: Key fob replacement: best place

Don't buy a used one (a fob can be married only once), and be very leary of the "rebuilt" ones. I needed an extra key, thought about eBay and amazon, ended up buying at the dealer for a few extra bucks. I paid $126 for the fob and emergency key, plus programming.
