Hi All,

Having read up on here first I've finally taken the plunge and got myself a 159 JTD QTronic 1.9. Fantastic car. Time to join Alfa Owner !

Slight snag though and I'd be grateful for any advice. I'm the second owner and I've only been given one key.The previous owner is a leasing company and they told me they were only supplied with one key by whoever returned the car to them.

You know what's coming..............

I spoke to my local dealer who has quoted me the best part of 500 for a replacement. Gulp. Looks like there's a bit of a trade going on in spare keys somewhere !

Does anyone know where I can get one a bit cheaper. Would be grateful.

Look forward to reading more about your experiences as I get used to the forum.
