    Talking Bought my new flipkeys after much deliberation!

    As above iv done it,

    I rang my local stealers in Swansea south wales for a price on a new key for my signum and they wanted £90 for the key and it was a horseshoe key aslo wanted £30 to program it, totalling £120 (to be expected to be honest)
    So decided to ring another stealers in Bridgend south wales and they wanted £66 odd for the key and £25 for programing totalling £91 a wopping £29 cheaper but it dont stop there i asked them how much it would be to program two keys and still £25
    So i went on feabay and found these
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...=STRK:MEWAX:IT
    so decided to buy two keys and they cut them for free for £95 all in and will be taking them to stealers for programing

    total cost £120 for x2 flip keys programed!!!

    cheers for the suggestion but iv booked it into vx for fri,
    To be honest i thinks it easier to go to vx that travel 20-30 miles to someone so they can sort it for me then id feel really bad as if i was taking advantage that they have tech 2

    Thanks all the same

    i spoke with this guy on ebay a week or so ago. was unable to buy a sodding key off him... he seemed determined to talk me out of it, could not quite believe it... may try him again in month or so if cannot find another seller who actually likes to sell them...

    I got mine today, and it looks nice buttons are a bit stiff . need a bit of working in.
    vauxhall want £55 to program it , saying thats the standard UK price.

    when i re-rang vauxhall swansea yerterday they still quoted me £29.38 and when i questioned them about bridgends price they told me it was standard but after a little mathmatics i came to the conclusion that the £25 rom bridgend didn't include vat!

    glad you got your key so quickly n you sound happy with it!
    I would personaly be a little sneaky with your local vauxhall and give them a ring and ask them again and when they tell you £55 say your due to go to vist family down sout wales and you rang vauxhall of bridgend and they quoted you £25+vat so what can they do to beat that?
    I think its worth a try as they all looking for custom at the end of the day!

    worth a try though.
