    Well, no-one on here's gonna tell you in public!

    I'd speak to Vauxhall and ask them to get new ones for you. You'll need the code for your car (it's on that little white credit-card sized card in your owners wallet) and wallet with money - £65 iirc?

    If you need immediate access, you'll have to break in and/or call the AA.

    right vx knowledge again lol

    you need car pass first if ya aint got one already its about £27 quid incl vat thats got key number on it. once you got that you can order key but at vx garage you need log book and drivers licence to obtain both key and car pass. they can then order key which are around £30 plus vat but you also need fob at bout another £20. then once you got all relevant bits you need to get the car to a garage to code the key to the vehicle. when they do this it is possible to take all old keys off system and add new ones which means old ones will still get in locks but not strat car due to immob not recognising key therefore not starting engine.

    keys are alot more then that, the blade is £50 and the fob part is double that...

    iv just enquired for my mate...

    or to do it cheaper, get a fob off ebay and a blank blade then go to a key cut place and theyll cut it to your key number for about a fiver, have it programmed up, either thru vxl or some1 with opcom (opcom) will be £sss less cheaper even if you buy it yourself for about £40

    when ordering the remote part of ebay make sure you get the right one iirc theres 3 diff ones that opperate on diff freq.

    That seems fairly cheap really. One of the lads at work lost the only key for one of the vans (the only van without a spare!). We had to get a new set like flown in from Mercedes in germany and it ended up costing like £300!
