Default replacement key for rx330

I lost my RX330 remote key. I still have another working key at home.

Can I purchase an uncut Lexus RX330 master key remote from ebay and then get it cut and programmed? I assume that I need to get the dealer to program the key. Can locksmiths cut the key or do I need to get the dealer to cut it?

I did some research. It appears that an inexpensive solution is to purchase an uncut Lexus RX330 key remote (which would go for around $50 on ebay). Prior to purchasing, I would find out if a local locksmith or a local Lexus dealer can cut the key (if you give them a master). The newer RX330 models require that you take the car to the dealer or locksmith that has Lexus key programming software (to program the key). Key cutting and key programming are two separate things.
