So after a few calls and quite the sticker shock I’ve decided to get 2 of the physical (emergency) keys and have them programmed by a locksmith. The price for a full fob with the key insert and programming was over $500 at a dealer, this should be less than $200.

My thought is that we’ll use the stock fob until it fails, when/if it does we have the emergency/insert key and the two copies we are going to get made.  Similar to what was mentioned here- https://forum.miata.net/vb/showthread.php?t=640781

We miss out on remote lock/unlock/panic but as far as I can tell that’s it. Sure we’d have to use the key in the ignition but I think it’s a fair option based on the prices.
