Does the '99 P2 Spider have remote locking?

Just picked up my first Spider (P2) (not my first Alfa though) and it came supplied with 2x red keys only.

The keys are the solid fob (not remote).

1. Does the Lusso model come equipped with a remote locking capability?

1.1 If so, is it possible to purchase an old 'red key' from ebay and have it reprogrammed to be compatible with my car?

1.2 If it is possible, what would be the cheapest/easiest way to achieve this?

Sound like you may have a Meta M99 alarm system fitted, to find out if this is fitted then you need to find the ECU Meta M99 Info.. Remote Central locking is a function of a working alarm system.

Be aware that the alarm and immobiliser (CODE), are 2 separate systems.

You cannot buy a secondhand key and have it reprogrammed, but you could have a new key cloned, this service can be provided by Timpsons.

Abacus CAr Alarms can supply a new fob for the Meta M99 alarm. In order for the guys to provide a new fob you need the red Meta code card, if not then you need to send the ECU to them for reprogramming.
