1998 Evo 5 Chipped key or Not?

Hi guys as above...

Would like to order a Key for my Evo 5. However I'm not sure if it's a chipped key or not? Any ideas? See attached photos. Theres no clarity in knowing if it's a chipped key or not i also have a aftermarket alarm and immobiliser system.

Not chipped, just the button in the middle for remote locking. You can get plain metal copies cut and any decent local locksmiths, if fact the standard spare was a plain metal one. If you go to the messing of getting another black key with the remote locking, its very unlikely you will get the remote locking working anyway off the new key

Thanks Stu

Really appreciate your knowledge that's a great help. Mitsubishi dealer quoted around £240 for the key to be coded to the EVO but knowing that I can find a decent locksmith to cut another key makes life easier.

£240!!

It's about £5. The one I got cut used a Proton key blank.

Think its more lack of knowledge than rip off, I cant remember anyone on here successfully getting to code a new key to the existing remote locking on a 4/5/6.

Metal key will be fine as a spare, and all I had when I had my 5
