I bought a 2011 200 S used and it only came with one of the original keys. From what I've read it's not possible to add more keys unless you have the 2 original keys otherwise you need to go to the dealer to have the key list reset.

Can anyone verify ?

Unfortunately this is true, you need 2 working keys to program additional keys. A dealer is able to able to add keys using the WiTech diagnostic tool. This also requires a PIN which the dealer is able to get through the parts department. If you buy the blank key through the dealer they may program it for you for the price of the key ($150 or so dollars).

Another option is to purchase the appcar software beta which is able to pull the PIN and program additional keys. It will cost $50 for the software and $40 for the obd dongle/cable to connect to the car obd port and you will need to buy a blank key. Note, do not buy a refurbished key, new only, as the key is programed to the wcm (wireless key module) of the car and cannot be reused/reprogrammed.
