Tip for transponder keys

Hi All,

Got rid of my 159 Lusso around 2 months ago and traded it in for a Merc, anyway I just simply wasn't happy not owning an Alfa and have just bought a very tidy Phase 2 Spider. No major issues other than the electric roof sticks on the way up and I was only given one key.

Useful to know that there is a locksmith who works from home in Calverton (Near Nottingham) who supplies and cuts new transponder keys at ridiculously cheap prices. I got an Audi key cut and a new Alfa transponder key supplied cut and programmed for £25 yesterday. I think the Alfa key would have been £15 (mine had the T5 transponder chip). I'm sure he'd do a postal service though obviously you'd have to send him a key to copy.
Great service so call Pat on 0115 8477702 if you need a key.

Awesome! I only have 1 key for each of my cars and haven't wanted to pay $120+ for each key to be made. I'm going to check out my lows this week.
Thanks for posting this.

Here's some info on how you can decode your key-cut to what on locksmith-ish is called bitting. If you have the bitting you can get an original (mechanically) rather than a copy.
