    Default Flip key

    Right i am looking at getting a flip key done for my preface 2004 Vectra SRI and just looking on ebay at them, can get a brand new uncut one with the chip in it, ready to be programmed and just wondering if it matters that its a 2 button key rather than having 3 buttons like my actual standard key has (unlock, lock and boot)

    Just wanted to know if this would cause a problem before ordering it.

    It wont cause a problem except that you will need to unlock the whole car rather than just the boot with the key if you wanted. How are you going to get the blade cut? give it to Vauxhall? Its not much use if you don't have it cut for your car just as well go to Vauxhall and buy a 3 button flip from them already cut and programmed for your motor!

    Shop around I got a 3 button flip for my pre-facelift for £64 from vauxhall 3 months ago if you are a full member and live near a discounted dealer you might even get it cheaper, stealers aren't always expensive you just need to pick and choose and play them off against the other they are all looking for your business at the moment

    I got a 3 button flip key from the dealer for £45 and programed it myself

    I wouldnt bother with ebay crap if its not cut it will cost you a bomb to get it cut and a suitable chip in it, the keys are laser cut and sent to the dealer ready for programing.

    Theres not many ppl other than the dealers that have tech 2 as it is so expensive, if someone does have it then all they need is your security pass and they could program it. Alternatvely get a hold of someone with op-com and they could do it for you again you would need the security pass.
