    Well yep they are the ones I phoned and I was not impressed with what they said, sounded to incompetent for me.
    If you had good experience with them I might give them a go anyway.
    Maybe the man from service had a bad day .

    Well I been to hartwell now and talked to a lady in service. £69 to activate it and have to leave car with them for a day. I smiled at her and said thanks a lot but I am not prepared to pay that amount for a ten minute job plus leave my car for a whole day. So I am on the hunt again lol. If anybody knows a garage down here or within 30 miles or so, let me know please. I am prepared to pay £40, maybe a vx fitter here who likes to earn a bit on a evening?
