    Lots of threads going on this - just search for flip key.

    Yes, you can get one - the only key Vx now supplies is the flip type. Should cost you £37.50 + VAT for the key and around £15 + VAT for the programming - so a grand total of around £62. If they want lots more than that then they are ripping you off.

    Make sure they order the three button type as yours is pre-facelift so you'll obviously want the boot release button.

    Recently got a flip key from Vauxhall.

    Be careful and shop round on phone first. My local dealer wanted £50 + vat for key and £35 + vat for coding, total price £100. You must have the original vehicle security card that gives the key number and security card. If you dont have one they cost another £15+vat.

    One phonecall latter and another dealer 10 miles further out wanted £47 odds for the key and coded it for free. They also agreed to do oil at trade price and was able to buy long life fully synthetic for £24 odds.

    Ring round first. I saved over £100 in one visit.

    - did they have the decency to ask you to drop your trousers before they you!!! That's outrageous!!! - that's double what it should be!! The key lists at £37.50 + VAT so no dealer should be asking for any more than that - simple as that. The programming is down to them what they charge, but anything much more than around £15 + VAT is taking the pee.

    Yep, that's right - shouldn't be anymore than that all in.
