Key Fob (additional) - eBay?

I have a new to me 2014 (12/2014) and would like to have a backup fob.

I know that the programming has to be done at the Service Center, but if you were to buy one on eBay will they still do it? It looks like you could save $100 or so buying used.

If so, does the fob varies for Model S's? Are all compatible with a 2014?

Has anyone done this successfully? I plan on keeping the car for awhile, so it'd be nice to get a 2nd and later a 3rd key.

Thanks.

Good timing. I want to do the same thing and asked the SC for quotes. Brand new key with programming is $177. Programming an existing working key is about $80. Ranger can do it as well. So the only risk is whether the key you buy from eBay is guaranteed to be working or not.

Thank you! That's a big help. $177 isn't too bad as that assumes < $100 for a brand new key from Tesla. If I could get that price, I might just suck it up and get Tesla to do it (especially if they can come out to me).
