    oohh...I was told in the region of £90 just for another flip key

    can't remember if that included programming....scary expensive
    Check out radio decoders in your region, they may have facilities to do it....

    I think the main problem is getting the key bit....
    not even the non flip spare would be suitable to put into a flip key....
