My 2013 Genesis came with one fob and no brass/physical key. I stopped by the dealer thinking a few hundred bucks for a replacement.. Nope. $657.

What are my options? I've read about this GDI/OBD tool that is similar to what hyundai uses, however it sounds like (at least as of 2015-2016 era) there was not a guarantee that a fob would be on the correct frequency for the car. So there's a risk of ordering a fob and it not working.

Okay, two dealerships and a bunch of research.

I found a parts guy (dealer) who was very nice and suggested a place called express car keys. Apparently the dealership itself uses them pretty often. You have to drive and meet them around town but they can do it for $165, and this is with an OEM (not knockoff) key. I'll update after it's done

I bought an exact match fob for my 2012 4.6 from keylessentryremotefob.com. Their site currently lists the fob for $77.77. You'll need a locksmith to cut the key.

The car keys express place went well. It was $160 inc tax all-in.

The dealer wanted 1 hour ($120) to do any programming period and warned that some of the ebay keys won't pair, and if there's an issue I don't get a refund. I saw that you can get ebay keys for around $40, but it's the same price as car keys express so why risk it.
