Help!!! Need a cheap Key for 156

I am in a spot of bother.

I have just sold my 1998 156 for "repair or breaking" on ebay following cambelt tensioner failure.

The car had been on my drive for a year since the cambelt problem.

Sold it for £166, but now cannot find the key. I feel duty bound to honour the sale with a key included as the buyer wants to restore, rather than scavenge parts, but am obviously keen not to spend more than the sale price to get hold of a new key.

Any ideas on the cheapest approach welcome. the buyer has been really understanding and is prepared to wait if a cheaper option takes a bit longer than main dealer all in one option.

"blank" keys sold on ebay but will need "programming" to individual car from main dealer. this is a bit cheaper than buying new barrel+key+fitting+programming

a new key + programming will cost more than £166
