I have lost the keys to my 2005 Mazda RX-8. The dealer wants

Resolved Question:

I have lost the keys to my 2005 Mazda RX-8. The dealer wants to charge me $350 to replace the key...and I must have my car towed to the dealer in order for them to program the key (so they claim). I have found a site ( that has my very key and claims the key can be programmed without having to take the car to the dealer. Is this legit? I just can't bring myself to pay $350 for a car key! Thoughts?
