    If you order one Duncan, be very, very patient.

    I have been waiting six weeks so far for mine...

    Ordered mine on a Monday and it was with my Main Dealer by Thursday of that same week. They rang me, I drove over to them, they programmed the key to the car, I paid the bill. SIMPLE AND QUICK. Cost me £44 Total.

    Well Chris - go back and say how come so dear?? when others are paying on just over £40. (sounds "like teaching grandma to suck eggs" but make sure you go straight to parts dept and not to a car saleman). If that fails then phone another VX main dealer for their price. Good luck mate

    Chris quote the part No Z16476 instead of asking them to look it up.
    When I asked them they quoted a different Part No which was more expensive.
    Most dealers seem to also charge for programming as the parts dept say they cant programme the key.

    I agree dazzh,

    Part number VZ16476.

    Cost £37.50 + VAT (£6.56) = £44.06 (these detail off my own receipt)

    It takes the mechanic no more than 3 minutes to programme the new key to your car and part dept should not charge you for that 3 minutes. If they want to charge you then just contact another VX main dealer.

    Does the programming involve Tech2 or is there a series of steps that you do with the key in the ignition.
