    Flip keys will work on early Veccies as the ones supplied when the car was new are no longer available (or so my dealer told me).
    You will need the internals for a flip key, get someone to cut the key and then you will also need to get a dealer or if you know someone to Tech2 the key to the car.

    If you order a new key it will be a flip style key you get.

    I can't really remember but new keys from Vauxhall are approx £50 (complete) then you will have to pay for it to be programmed.
    To order a key from Vauxhall you will need to have the car pass or if you haven't got one you will have to order a new one of those beforehand.
    Don't know about buying the internals but would of thought you could get a used key off of ebay, get it wiped and reprogrammed with Tech2.

    Vauxhall's computer system they connect to your car.
    Would have to be done by either a Vauxhall garage, independent garage that has a Tech2 or there are some people on here that own their own Tech2.
