With these costs I'm looking at ripping it out and putting a new one in for around the same price (with 2 fobs). Anyway just for info. Andy.
Hi, Could you not get a local dealer to program a new fob by taking the contlor unit to them as I was advised?

Re: Replacement alarm

That's good, how much did it cost for the replacement?

Re: Replacement alarm

cost me 119 + VAT for the whole thing, thought it was wiser spending this than loosing my insurance.

Shoggyraminator: i couldn't buy a siren on its own so it would have been pointless taking the unit to the dealer.

From the Meta website, if you're in a real hurry and snailmail won't do ...

For details of the nearest MetaSystem dealer, please contact MetaSystem UK on 01905 791700 or email

I need to sort mine out when I've got shot of the wiper issues and replaced the rear bushes.

Remember ... An Alfa is for life, not just for Christmas
