Re: Bought my first Alfa
There is no master key system for 156 keys, like there was with some old Fiat models. With the old 156's, all keys are red, with the new 156s, all keys are black.
I've heard that there are key-cloning companies operating via the Internet, but don't really know too much about them as I haven't used them. A few people on here have though.
You could buy a case off ebay for a few quid, get local key cutter to cut the blade, and then get it reprogrammed, at least it would save you the £113 + VAT.
