uh, girl- you need to find better "buddies"- one goes to jail (not that there's anything wrong with that, I'm sure he's innocent) but the other one can only help out like he's stealing the car (taking the whole ignition switch out)- that's not the way to deal with no keys- you could have just gone to the dealer and they could have cut you a new key, or a locksmith could have done the job right, or... (etc.etc.etc.) at this point, find a good mechanic, or go to an upscale bar and find a new man, one who has a job and maybe can just buy you a new car- and don't let bozos touch your car, ever again-
