    £113?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Were they expecting him to bend over and drop his trousers at the same time!!

    Flippy key should cost no more than around £62. £37.50 + VAT for the whole key and whatever they charge for programming, but shouldn't ever me more than £15 + VAT. Where the hell do they get that price from. They key is a set price so that works out at £69 for programming!!!

    Who are C.W. BTW?

    I dropped my car key down the drain a week after having it!!! My dealer charged me about £48 for the flip key and the master tech programmed it up in his lunch hour in exchange for a slab of Fosters.

    Now that is what I call service!!! I got the old key back, but did'nt fancy using it again!!

    Its mental, I think Frauds are a bit like that - depends on what key you have, with our work Vans, we have 2 Different Keys - one with a Blue chip and One with a Red chip, depending on which key you bring them to get a new one cut affects the price severely, im sure one is double the price.
