“The first car I bought was the most beautiful car I’ve ever seen. It was second hand, but I parked it outside of my hotel the day I got it. I sat up all night, just lookin’ at it.”  – Elvis Presley

Who else shares the King’s love for cars? An invested interest in cars is more than a hobby; it’s a passion.

But, just like anyone else, you might find yourself locked out of your car in the most inconvenient of situations.

This week, we explain how you can get back into some of the most popular luxury car brands.

Locked out of your Porsche?

The Porsche name is synonymous with luxury, style, and speed. The German auto manufacturer is headquartered in Stuttgart and was founded by Ferdinand Porsche in 1931. Porsche is closely associated with the Volkswagen Group.

From the Boxster and the 911 to the Cayenne SUV, the Porsche driving experience is hard to match.

There’s perhaps noting more irritating than hopping into your car at the end of a particularly gruelling Monday at work, at the end of a shopping day, or simply picking up the kids from school to find that you’ve accidentally slammed the door shut… and there’s your key, sitting in the ignition.

Our mobile workshop can come to you, wherever you are, and get you back into your car without damage.

An auto locksmith that comes to you will help you on your way sooner!


Locked out of your BMW or Mercedes-Benz?

Both BMW and Mercedes-Benz recorded an increase in sales in Australia according to stats from 2015.

The luxury brands outlined in this blog post – including BMW and Mercedes-Benz – often incorporate advanced technology into their lock and key systems, designed to increase security and make it almost impossible for petty thieves to access your car.

That’s why it’s important to choose only a qualified locksmith who has the experience as well as the tools to get you back into your car safely when you find yourself locked out.


Lexus and VW key replacement


Did you know that the Lexus brand is the luxury division of Japanese carmaker Toyota?

Lexus sales reached their peak in 2007 but subsequent factors, notably the 2008 recession and 2011 Japanese tsunami hurt their sales. However by 2013 they had recovered and sales exceeded records that were first met in 2007.

Lexus car keys are usually made up of the key and a battery operated remote. Some older models do not need to have their key programmed, whereas newer ones do. Make sure you tell your car locksmith the correct year and model of your Lexus to ensure they can tell you what exactly needs to be done.


Volkswagen – often shortened to VW – is a German auto manufacturer that was founded back in 1937. Did you know that the Volkswagen Group is the largest automaker in the world?

Volkswagen means “the people’s car” in German. From the zippy Polo and the sleek Jetta to the quintessentially 2000s Beetle and the 2016 winner of Drive Car of the Year, the Tiguan, VW sure delivers on its claim!

Galmier Locksmiths can get you back into you VW car* and can even cut replacement car keys* if you’ve lost all your keys or need a spare.
