Second key needed... and dealer failed

Bought an 04 Coupe Cambiocorsa that came with, you guessed it, one key and no code card.

Decided I would go the legit way and went to the dealer (Rairdon in Kirkland) and ordered a second key using my VIN. Key came and didnít fit. Apparently Maseratiís records arenít all that great, and the car must have been re keyed at some point. Maserati lost the records.

Read through lots of old posts here and am considering dialing locksmiths until I find one willing to tackle this.

Anyone in the greater Seattle area have any leads?

Iíve bought two used Maseratis both had only one key. The only time to deal with this is at the time of purchase. In both cases I said, two keys or no deal. In both cases I got two keys. Sorry but youíre looking at +/- $500 if you want a proper second key.

Ah, but thatís the problem. Maserati sent the second key and itís not correct. They have no record of whatís correct , so itís off to the aftermarket I go, as the only option they presented was to get a complete lockout kit for over $3k with labor.
