Ok, then I am sorry to say that a lock smith is the only real option. If time was not an issue, the I would suggest going to the dealer and get them to cut you a new key using your VIN, but with time an issue, lock smith is the next quickest outside of calling the fire department, but then we tend to leave a mark when we have to forcibly enter a vehicle.
