    Assuming they use the same technology as a mk4 then the keys cannot be reprogrammed - the cars computer is told to accept the new key signal. Do a search on this ere forum to find out a bit more.

    Just looked on fleabay - a bloke selling the keys - his advert stated that the the ecu would need to be told to accept the key signal - so they are the same as mk4

    oops i was wrong - at the end of the fleabay auction it says :

    WARNING!!!!! DO NOT BUY A SECONDHAND (USED) ASTRA MK5 (H) KEY AS THERE IS NO WAY THEY BE REPROGRAMMED TO YOUR CAR (SO DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY)
    Payment must be made within 48hrs.

    ebay.oDocument.oPage.createConfig = function() { var c = this.oDocument.addConfig(new EbayConfig("ViewItem.Counter")); c.aCounterDivIds = ['counterTop','counter']; c.sCounterUrl = 'http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?VICounter&item=120421601775'; c.bShowCounter = true; } ebay.oDocument.oPage.createConfig();
