    Default 3 button key required

    Looks like there's a lot of different prices for these, depending on where you go. Can someone please recommend a dealer in central scotland who doesn't need a mask?

    I thank you

    Price should be around £35+VAT for the key, £15+VAT for the programming - any more than that and they are taking the pee.

    Don't know any dealers in that area I'm afraid.

    well I gave them a call and they're saying: -

    Key = £37.50 + vat
    Prog = £24.00 + vat

    Shocker eh.....even with 10% discount you're still looking at over £60

    It is quite steep, but it's probably whet I'll end up paying anyway.

    Thanks for your help buddy, much appreciated.

    Hey Paul,

    I've just spoken to another local VX dealer and they say you can't get the 3 button key any more it's only the 2 button folding key and they come in around the £70 mark programmed.
