I just bought a 2018 WRX in red and I received 3 keys. The master, sub master and valet key. I was just wondering what the difference is between the master and sub master and how to tell them apart. I have not been able to find this information in the manual or via a google search.

What is a sub master key? You should have 2 regular keys and a valet key.

In the parts catalog you cannot order a valet key for some reason. It looks like it should only have a master key (with buttons), and a master key without buttons. I guess thats what they're calling the "sub master" key.

Also, the purpose of a valet key is to work on the drivers door and the ignition. Thats it. It shouldn't unlock the glove box.
