That’s pretty much the going rate for higher end luxury cars. The fob will be $300ish plus labor to disable the security system of the car and reprogram it (along with any others you have, they all have to be programmed at once). I know on other higher end cars there’s a lot of paperwork and scrutiny on a tech doing this job so I doubt you’ll find someone willing to do it cheaper or sneak it in at-cost after hours for a case of beer. I don’t know what model we’re talking about so that’s based on dealing with modern Lincolns and Cadillacs.

Coming in a bit late but re: Bangkok. Great choice Ian, it's an awesome city (although I've only ever visited) and SEA is a great part of the world to live in. You've got Singapore or KL pretty close to if you need a break from the chaos and access to more Western brands, etc. It's not something people need but it can be nice every now and again.

You're going to start thinking Slovak beer is expensive though, and make sure to make the most of the amazing street food! God I want to get some delicious Thai street food again now... The only problem with Thailand really is the political situation which seems to have settled down since the Crown Prince actually became king and hasn't tried to overthrow the current oligarchs. I'm not sure how fundamentally that's changed the dynamic there but when I was living in Malaysia (left 2015) that was a situation that looked like it could blow up into full on authoritarian crackdown any minute.

 This morning’s Vegas strip breakfast floor show was provided by a 20-something who was still so drunk at 7am that he fell on the sidewalk and then proved unable to both stand up AND pick up his 18-pack of Budweiser at the same time.  Repeatedly.  Even with assistance.  I should have taken video but, y’know, lawsuits and all...

Restaurant staff and the city work crew watching were highly amused.  I’m guessing it’s a normal Tuesday there  awesome, for real

Anything filmed in a public setting is fair game. Have at it!

It was apparently $300 when I purchased the car. Which is, I guess, worth every goddamn penny.

I love when insurance pays off. I dropped 1800 on an extended warranty which is a chunk but it ultimately paid for about 3 grand in repairs while it was operative. Missed out on another 1300 by six lousy months.

Friendly reminder - if you have a pet that is sick, make sure to turn off the robot vacuum schedule.

It wasn't anywhere near as bad as it could have been, but still it was a solid hour's cleaning.

I believe it has paid off because you have a German car.  If they didn't have maintenance plans, no one would drive them.

Good deal.  I assume you were told about this well before you rushed here to tell us.
