    is it 100 % that once a key is programmed to a car it cant be used on another, there are hundreds of keys on ebay , so these are all usless, the transponder can only be programmed once.

    You could look into buying new transponder chip such as this one http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VAUXHALL-B...item257ad43381
    This one is for standard key not flip type one, but I am sure you can get the one for flip one.
    So used key + new transponder chip, will code no probs.

    You can get a virginised key on ebay for around £50 or less, a blade cut to your key code on ebay for around £9.50 and program it yourself using the likes of tech2 or Vauxcom or similar

    Hi nokiaman,
    I am interested in following how you resolve your key issue as, like you, I am down to 1 key as well and really need to get a new one soon. Where were you quoted £130 as I live not far from Glasgow and would appreciate if you could keep me posted.

    Thanks.

    i went to vauxhalls in kew, west London and they quoted me £150 for a new key. but they also recommend a local(ish) locksmith who sorted me out for £75, I'm sure there will be someone local to you who will be able to do a key at a more reasonable price

    How about

    £50 - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1810770650...84.m1438.l2649 I am fairly sure this fella can cut you a blade from your keycode on the car pass, but if not then there is always ......
    £10 - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/GM-OPEL-VA...item3ccf6919ed

    £60 tops plus your own programming tools
