Hi all,

When I had a GTV last year, I wanted to get a few spare keys for the car as it only came with 1. So I bought a couple of blank keys, with the chip inside. I went to Timpsons and they cut and coded the key and they worked fine.

I tried the same thing today in Timpsons as I have just got another GTV (with too few keys!), and they 'no longer cut keys purchased outside a Timpsons shop'.

Just thought I would let you all know in case you were intending on buying blanks from ebay and using Timpsons.

However, they do actually stock the blank keys with chip in their shop (in Thirsk), so I just got one of their keys cut and coded. £20.

I use the guy on the local market, he is happy to cut and code keys for you. He supplies them as well if you want although they are " FIAT " key blanks he uses.

IIRC he charged me less than a tenner to cut and code two keys.
