156 lost key

has anyone lost keys to an Alfa owned from new only to find when a new one is made up (at £312) that it doesn't fit the locks? I have also spent £188 on a locksmith to break into the car and make a correct key that fits; only problem is, he couldn't attach the blade to the remote. To start the car I need to insert the blade into the ignition with a pair of pliers and then hold the remote to the ignition at the same time... I have opened a case with Alfa in Italy hoping that they will provide a further key FOC but progress is very slow and today the telephone number 00 800 2532 0000 is not working.

Have you had the car from new? Maybe the locks were changed already?

Or a mistake was made conveying/entering the mechanical code somewhere....

156 lost key

I bought the car from new. The Alfa dealer I bought it from no longer exists but allegedly changed the locks without informing Alfa. I have only had the car serviced at Alfa dealers.

What number is this ?? 0800 is UK free phone number , if you are calling abroad 00 CODE then an 800 number is unlikely to work
