Default Smartkey Programming L.A. Area

I bought an OEM smartkey for my newly purchased 2011 XJL Supersport since it came with only one key, thinking any auto locksmith could handle programming it and cutting the emergency key. But calling around I got "Sure, we can program any smartkey - what kind of car is it? A Jaguar?! We don't work on Jaguars..."

Then I called Automotive Key in Santa Clarita - (661) 313-0588 - and they were able to program the new smartkey and cut the aluminum spare with no issues for $100. A large savings over the dealer, needless to say.

No affiliation, these guys are highly recommended!

Good to know! Thanks for the suggestion, I'm in need of a second key for my 2009 XF I just picked up!
