147 New Remote Control Key

Hi Guys (& Gals?)

Ive had a quick search through the forum and not found anything that seems relevant, so here a Q.

Is there no way to buy a replacement key/remote control for a remote locking system on my 147 than going to Alfa?

I lost a bunch of keys with my car key in the luggage hold of a KLM Jumbo (case pocket ripped) and have been using the manual key ever since. The dealer wants over 200 Euros for a new radio key and programming. I dont believe you can get a whole new remote control system with two keys on ebay for 20 Euros and you cant just get a key for an existing system for similar money .

Anyone got any tips? I really wouldnt care if a new key didnt have an alfa emblem on it but for 200 smackers Im prepared to carry on opening manually for a long time yet.

Re: 147 New Remote Control Key

buy a second hand key, get a new blade cut to match your locks, fit that blade on the 2nd hand key, go to an alfa dealer and get them to program it. that should half the cost, only problem is finding an alfa dealer who is willing to do the programming.
