Well, you can get the keys reprogrammed at the dealership, so it wouldn't be a problem. I've seen it done a few times before.

not all honda keys work on the same immobilizer system. to get a flip key to work youll have to gut one of your stock keys and the flip key and swap the transievers. depending on the flip key you get it may or may not work with your OEM keyless system too. It's been done on the rsx forums a few times. It's time consuming, but if you really want the flip key, have at it.
