    New Astra MK4 key

    Hi all, is there a cheap alternative to buying a new programmable key from vauxhall? My astra only came with one and i'd like to get a spare but without paying a rediculous price to vauxhall?
    Any help would be great!
    thanks

    you could get one cut but it wouldnt start the engine. Would only unlock the doors. If you intend on using it to run the car, you need the vaux one.
    Astra Sold! Now its back! Sold Again! Who knows whats going on!

    I guess you can buy a key fob from ebay with the immobilizer chip and buy the key blade seperate from vauxhall? You would still need to reprogram the immobilizer though

    Ahh right, didn't know it wouldn't run the car. Does anyone know how much Vauxhall charge for a clone of my current key with keyfob programmed etc?
    There is some guy selling instructions on ebay for 99p on how to program the keyfob using the ignition, dunno if its genuine tho

    Well I just got a new key from vauxhall aka rip-offhaul. Cost me £130 for key, programming and the stupid card that you need with car codes on it.

    Buy an OP-COM on ebay, then you can reprogram the keys yourself
