    Default flip key

    I have just ordered a new flip key, has any one got a photo of what they look like, I told them I would like one with the three buttons on. I hope that is the sort they will send me, then I have to take the car to get the key programed in.

    Did you order it from Vx Ed?

    Make sure the frequencies are the same as your existing key. It is printed on the back

    Ed,
    Have a look at the Flip Key thread in Car Chat started by Basil. The pictures are there as well.

    You will see that I picked mine up today. Do not be overcharged. They are £37.50 + VAT. I did not pay for the coding but others have been quoted and charged a lot more. Who did you go to? Lookers?

    I got mine from my local dealer in Warwick.

    That's the same price as I paid Ed. £37.50+VAT for the key and £15+VAT for the programming. I think they've told you a little porky by saying it's a trade price, but they haven't charged you over the odds.

    I paid £44.06 inc VAT for the key and no charge for the guy programming it with the Tech 2 in the car. They are charging you £15.25 + VAT for the programming which is a lot cheaper than some rip off dealers.

    Watch out when you put it onto your key ring though. I was sitting in the kitchen when fitting mine and a short time later wifey went out the front door and saw that all my windows were down! And it was raining. I had obviously been pressing the key whilst twiddling the key ring around to get the key on. The new flip key has a much greater range than my original key.

    Thank goodness I have leather seats as I just leathered them dry.

    Hi Duncan I normaly get trade from them, but one of the service staff served me, not the normal parts man, so you might be right, as long as I have not been ripped off, as they useually give a very good service at that garage...
