I have looked at the key / transmitter combo, but I carry two keys to any vehicle I drive, always a spare on hand .... even those with key pads. 31 years plus as a Trooper getting calls to rest areas and such for people locked out, a few times a buddy got locked out (not same buddy twice) and so I developed my habit. As to my police cars, always had a third key attached to car in secret spot.
Having the key fob transmitter made as one with the key never looked like a "great idea" to me, I can think of several reasons why not to.
Since acquiring my first Ford with the keyless pad, I have always gone to Ebay and same seller to buy my extra keys and transmitters and always done my own programming with car / truck. I also have insisted on minimum 2 keys and a transmitter at purchase.
I can do the rest of what I want after getting key blanks cut locally and tested for fit.

punch in a 5 digit code and your doors unlock, within 3 seconds push the 5/6 button and you trunk unlocks.
OK .... hadn't considered this!
I have both a '92 and '95 T-bird, a '01 Mercury and a '07 FX4 that all have the door mounted wired key pad and I do like it (I also have the number written with Sharpie in some secret spot in case I forget one momentarily and need it .... usually I'm using the keypad most when parked at home and I'm just getting something and left keys to that one in house) .
I was a wee bit disappointed that the 2008 Mustang GT we bought in June didn't have it, but the price and low miles and color and condition were superb ....
.... and today I see this thread / picture?
I'll order one this week, I like inside the gas door.
Can somebody post the key fob programming directions. My car bought used did not come with a manual.
This is for 2007--hope yours is the same.
Ensure the brake pedal is not depressed during this sequence.
1. Ensure the vehicle is electronically unlocked.
2. Put the key in the ignition.
3. Cycle eight times rapidly (within 10 seconds) between the OFF/LOCK position and the ON position. Don't confuse ON with ACCESSORY. ON is two positions clockwise from OFF/LOCK.
The eighth turn must end in the ON position. The doors will lock, then unlock, to confirm that the programming mode has been activated.
4. Within 20 seconds press any button on the remote entry transmitter. The doors will lock, then unlock, to confirm that this remote entry transmitter has been programmed.
5. Repeat Step 4 to program each additional remote entry transmitter.
6. Turn the ignition to the OFF/LOCK position after you have finished programming all of the remote entry transmitters. After 20 seconds, you will automatically exit the programming mode. The doors will lock, then unlock, to confirm that the programming mode has been exited.
