    replacement keys

    Is it possible to buy a replacement (spare) key anywhere apart from a Main Dealer?

    I got my car yesterday and it only has 1 key.

    Dealer in Swindon wants £70

    You can get blanks off eBay and get them cut, then you'll need to get it coded to your car by a friendly someone with OpCom or TechII.

    Does work out cheaper, but you'll have to put a bit of effort in yourself

    I would have thought any automotive key cutter could do them, but best to check first.

    I got all mine from the dealer, ended up paying around £120 for it all :/ after coding etc, which i got cheap from my dads mate

    But as for the key, im sure you need the car info sheet thingy, which has the immobiliser number on etcc

    Yes
    Alarmed or none alarmed?
    There are two types of remote fob, bosch and f'get the name,
    However, they are not compatible,
    You need a fob
    a horseshoe key cut
    all needs programming into your car with opcom/tech2
    You will also need your car"pass"(but sometimes isn't needed)

    Shop around please some high steet key cutters have the facility.

    I can supply you with a fob ( i have both types)

    I hope i have helped a little
