There's lots of do's and don'ts about buying a GTV, and to be honest, I ignored them all when I bought my P-reg Phase 1 GTV a couple of months ago! (On the plus side, I've seen Lyle's through the credit-crunch, and I expect I'll be invited to their Christmas do this year - no regrets though).
One of the resulting problems is that I only have one key and fob, and I don't have the brown code key.
My questions are:
1) Is it possible to get a replacement brown key? If so, how much can I expect to pay?
2) What's the biggest risk of not having the brown key? (i.e. What's the worst that could happen and how much would it cost to put right? This will help me decide whether a new brown key is a worthwhile investment).
3) How much would I expect to pay for a spare key and fob?
4) Is it possible to get a modern-style key with the remote locking and alarm buttons incorporated? If so how much?
Thanks in advance for your anticipated advice and for telling me I'm a berk for buying a GTV without the full set of keys!
