Lost key...absolute nightmare
(Sorry-I realise there are many key threads, but this is a bit different)
Just a month after buying my alfa 147, with just 1 key, i managed to lose it in a club.Idiot. I went to my dealer, was quoted £130+50 for coding...so far so good.
Took it in today, then he phoned and told me that because the alarm was set when i lost the key, he couldnt get round it to reset the code. He then told me I'd need a new body computer at a cost of about £250 +labour.
This is madness! Just for a lost key, i have to spend £500!!!!Does anyone know if this is common,you shouldnt have to replace a whole computer just for a lost key. Has it happened to any of you? I'm in the mood to cry...I'm just a poor student.
Anyone any advice please...
