That`ll be about right it only takes a few mins to code a key but Main Dealers always charge about £50 for the "use"of the diagnostic machine :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Will be the only way to go unless you can find someone who can copy the code from your olds one but there few and far between :rolleyes:

In that case I was right :rolleyes: :cheese:

Sure someone posted a while ago to say they had got a key coded elsewhere but its does need to be cloned form the original or master.

Perhaps it's best you go to the dealers then, I got a technician at the dealers to put my alarm codes in when my interior light was replaced. :)
Perhaps you could have a word with one of the tecnicians and get one of them to do it after work ;) ;) for a nominal fee ;) ;)
