yeah not only does it need to be laser cut but you also have to have it programmed to work with your immobilizer. You gotta pay for the key and labor... it sucks but what can u do (unless you know someone who works at a dealer)

Ditto. The key should have a V engraved on the shaft. It would then need to be cut for the car. After that, the dealer or someone with an HIM/HDS would need to add the keycode to the vehicle so that the immobilizer recognizes the code unique to that key.
