I have searched high and low (yes, even on e-Bay) for a new key fob. I have a 2005 Cayenne, the remote/key is prety banged up. Does anyone know of a place that sell a replacement other than the dealer? My dealer said they can cut the key on the spot and program the remote. I am just hoping to find the unit cheaper than going through the dealer.

I purchased several remotes through eBay for about $40 USD each. The new remote normally comes with a blank key that will need to be cut. But since you are just replacing the remote, you can use your key as is. I believe only the Porsche Dealer can do (or coordinate) the cutting of the key to your VIN. AND, the Dealer will program the remote as well. If you are in a hurry, buy a remote via the Dealer. If not, keep an eye on eBay.

Best of luck.

Hi, I bought one off of ebay, an uncut key with remote. the seller was remote hub, and I took it to the dealer to get programmed and cut, and they told me it was a deffective key and couldn't be reprogrammed, so i was out 75 bucks. So i then ordered one from the dealer and it cost me $200 for the key and $85 for them to program it. My original key was beat up really bad and they replaced it under warranty. So i would check with the dealer to see if they will cover your beat key under your warranty. Hope this helps! :thumbup:
