i have a spare 997 key i would like to use it on the 996 i can put the blade on it and the little glass pill looking transponder does anyone know how to program just the door looks for either 996 or 997 cars or any help for the retrofit

Transponder and metal key is all you need to do.

Everything else will work as before.

I have a 986 Boxster 2000 and it seems this key (911 Branded) will also work for me. Much better than the black 2 button key/fob that is standard.

I only have one dud key left, the remote unlock works 30% of the time and just cant find the good one.

I am thinking the best bet is to purchase 2 x fob head units ($115 each Suncoast) and 2 blank keys ($23 each suncoast), then head down to the dealer to reprogramme.

I will probably try and find a locksmith to cut the key prior.

If anyone has other ideas please let me know, I am doing a parts order from the US to cover this and a DIN2 audio upgrade

Instead of ordering blanks, then finding someone to cut them .... just fax a copy of your title to Suncoast or Sunset, and they will send you keys already cut for your VIN.

There is a group on EBay that makes 996/Boxter keys from just a picture emailed to them. At $15 each and free mailing for two I was amazed that they worked perfectly. A suncoast 997 key head and 10 minutes to move the electronics - perfect!
