Here is the pic. Top key is my main key. Bottom one is the spare with a replacement blade.

As you can see the replacement blade is cut normally but the tip was taken off to file the rectangular hole into the key. I really cannot beleive I've stooped so low that I'm posting keys of my car to defend some poor soul who was giving me a bit of advice.
I'm sorry, but I stand by my comment more than ever now.

There is no way, even if someone promised to pay for the potential repairs, that I would have ever contemplated sticking that bottom key in my ignition.

It is clearly not a visual match, which you had described - not stated, as you say I claim.

You've really blown this up over nothing.
