How to obtain a remove for keyless entry?

My car didn't come with a remote, but I'd love to be able to use that feature. Any suggestions on how to do this with out going through a dealership? I don't even want to know what this would cost through them. Thanks!

I bought a couple cheap ones on ebay - dont remember exactly but they were around $20. Programming took a few repeats of the process to get working but never having done it before I managed it.

Awesome, thanks for the info. I looked on ebay and a few different styles pop up.

Anyone have a pic of what the remote for a 2000 OBW Limited would look like?

I had one already for my 01 Outback, but I purchased one for my Fiance's 03 Baja direct from the dealer for under 50 bucks IIRC. At the time I had no idea how to program them, and they did it for free.

Thanks, I figured that page might be a better source for which one than ebay. Thought I'd double check though.

I have an 01 and purchased the remote with colored buttons. It works fine with my 01...

The 2005 remote (teardrop style) will work as well. Just throwing that out there since I think it's better looking than that other ones. I bought one off eBay when I had my 2004 and it programmed without a problem.

EDIT:

This is what I'm talking about: http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-2005-201...7fc90c&vxp=mtr

I had found one without the trunk release button for mine. There's a possibility that the trunk release would work anyway. On my 2008, I have a button to unlock just the rear hatch.

Come to think of it, I bought one of these for my mom's '01 Limited and it programmed for that too.

I replied in the thread given above as well, but I'm not able to make this work. The horn does not honk. I tried the key at different speeds too.
