Finished work saturday 7pm,car is never locked at work,single site road access off of a dual carrigeway,jumped in and put my coat on the passenger seat,grabbed key from the pocket and it flopped in half onto my lap "OH BUGGER" i thought knowing that its the only key i've got, so good old dad to the rescue, picked me up.
Tuesday i went to MOTORVOGUE in northampton where the nice little man said its gonna cost you at least £1000 to get it sorted,he printed out a quote for me wich came to £2935.10
(2 ECU's/set of 3 keys/complete set of locks/programming/ fitting&VAT).which intstantly turned him into an " 'orrible little toad".he tried to redeem himself by offering a service key to be cut.car was already open("chocolate fireguard" sprang to mind).
after that he told me that there are companies out there that can CLONE THE RED KEY but didn't know of any locally,i'm hoping that some of you guys can help me find one.
I would really hate to have to sell it for parts when there is nothing wrong with the car itself.
especially as i only paid £1500 for it
