Default Replacement Key?

I need a new key for the forester and I was wondering what the cheapest option is?

Can you get a key cut and then get a new immobiliser remote separately? I heard genuine subaru keys are like $300?

surely you can buy a set of new aftermarket key fobs cheaper than that though?

not to sure, i could get the key for about $100 but then that would just open the doors manually, but then i need to turn the immobiliser off so its kind of pointless. wouldnt mind knowing some options as well as i only have 1 key and its falling apart

In the US they have spare remotes on ebay.

Not sure if these will work here?

Correct as they need to match the signal code which comes
on that little silver plate that comes with your key.

They will still charge you an arm and a leg probably!

Why do you only have one key?? I would be asking the dealer/person you bought it off where the other one is...

Pretty sure if it was that easy, cars could be stolen even easier than
they are nowdays.
