    blank keys for 05 STi?

    this past weekend i made an 9 hour drive and picked up my 05 Sti. the company had bought it at an auction so natually they only have one key and one remote. already bought a new remote for it but i am having trouble finding blank keys. all the ones i find states that it is not compatiable with the 05+ sti models? any ideas asides from the dealership where i can get a blank key that will work? thanks in advance.
    i did search around on the site but didn't find the answers.

    Note: 2005+ WRX STi and 2006+ WRX have an immobilizer system that uses a special key with a computer chip in it. In order to use this key you'll have to keep the originial key -- or the chip from that key -- on your keychain
    looks like you'll have to go to the dealer to get a key with a chip that'll work

    First, WELCOME!!!

    Congrats on your STi. I've always gotten my extra keys from the Dealer. I know the Valet key can be made at any lock smith, I've done that once before but the actually key you'll only be able to purchase from the Dealer due to the immobilizer. Get an STi key!!

    looks like i will be making a trip to the local dealership after work. i was looking at the "STi keys" but i understand that they aren't compatible for 05+ STi's due to the immobilizer chip. nice looking key though.


    i'll posting some pics of car here shortly. this weekend maybe.
