Latest update: Went to Timpson's and got a key cut from the Burgundy master - they had red ones in stock, not shiny ones (...sound like a magpie!) which he cut and coded. Took it home and bingo - works a treat!...and all for £24.95.
While I was there I asked him to check if he could code the other red keys. He checked and they were coded already, he can't re-code them. Most interestingly, he told me that they were coded with the same code as the Burgundy Master Key, yet they won't start the car???
FYI I also rang local main dealer, Donalds in P'boro, and they quoted £50+ for a key and £39.99 to code it! Best part of £75.00 seems a high premium to pay just to have a nice shiny Alfa key, unless you've just won the lottery, inherited a fortune,...
Many thanks once again for all your help. This Newbie is glad he signed up!
