    Ignition Problem

    I put the key in the ignition and i couldn't turn the key at all. If i got the key in the right position the key would turn and i could start the car. I moved the car forward a bit turned the ignition off and removed the key. Went to do it all again and the key turned first time. It feels now as if the key is sticking as i turn it to start the car, its not a smooth turn like it used to be. Its the same with my spare key as well, which i don't think has ever been used in the car before. Any ideas?!?! What the worst case and roughly how much is it gonna cost?!?!

    I appreciate any help on this one!!!

    Thanks

    I had this problem and just sprayed loads of silicon spray in the barrel and kept turning it back and forth, that was 9 months ago and I haven't had the problem since

    Oh and do you have a private plate on your coupe now? Got waved at bysomeone in a europa blue coupe on the A41 between Stanmore and Bushey

    Hello mate.

    Might give that a go with the ignition. It hasn't happened since! Must be one of those things!

    Not got a private plate. There are a few Europa Blue coupes in Hemel. At Ashridge park there were three 888s having a photo shoot, Lovely!!!
