Hang on. I bought a second key from Alfa (Mango's IIRC) for my GT. All they wanted from me was the registration and VIN which the OP will get. They had all the details, cut the blade to suit the car. I picked the key up.
What I never did was pay Alfa UK for the pin code to program the (once only per fob) code. The key cost me £160, the code and programming was about another £60-£70 which I never bothered to do.
Now from what I recall you can phone the dealer whom will attempt to get you the code from ARUK which in most cases is possible. You need to prove ownership which the OP will be able to do.
You can then take that code to a key specialist who would also do it. However I don't think there is much in the way of saving much money but you might.
Mangos never once asked for my exisitng key, they don't need it.
So Studoublem when you get the V5 speak to your favourite AR dealer. He should be able to organise the key/s and programming. I'd wager the keys to be about £200-£250+programming. If you need two it'll be around £500-£600 I would guess.
Priorities I find, are usually someone else's.
Statements above are all my own opinion and not fact.
