    Vehicle : Vectra C 3.2 Gsi Auto LPG (with LUBE)

    Trim : Gsi with loads of "Extras"

    I think you misunderstood the service offered guys . From the look of it they will "virginise" a used keyfob (that means splitting the old fob apart, soldering in a new un-programmed chip, and re-fit the electronics into a new fob). It doesn't even have to be your existing fob, in fact, it's unlikely to be yours, more likely one that you bought off the bay to use on your car. As they say, you cannot re-program a ready programmed key, but if the main integrated circuit chip is replaced with a new one, (which is what they are offering) you basically wind up with a used key, that looks (electronically) like a new one.
    You then take the fob wherever you want to in order to get it cut, and if you can't program it yourself, then get it programmed too.

    Looks like a good deal to me. The big issue is making sure you get the correct "used fob" to match your car before you start (been there , got the TeeShirt with the wrong fob already) or else it's the "same" as buying a new Ford Fob, and wondering why it won't program to your Vectra/Signum. It is so confusing that although the Vx flip keys all look the same, there are about 3 or more different lots of electronics inside them.
    Cheers
