Another key issue-cutting this time

Hi all.
Has anyone out there ever has a duplicate key blade cut for a 147 (the laser type with the wobbly groove)
I have a blank and am currently pulling my hair out trying to find a place that can cut it.
The groove goes down to as small as 2.3mm in places and most places shrug their shoulders at anything with a groove thats not 3mm wide.

I'm sure Alfa aren't unique with these as a friend has an Audi A3 and his is the same and a Zafira at work is also sub 3mm groove in it so I'm guessing there's either a huge gap in the auto key market that will need filling soon or dealers are getting ready to rub their hands together.

Can someone offer any leads?
