    Default Flip Key

    Should my car have a flip key or not? It only came with one key but I would like a flip key so I have two keys for my car. It's a 2002 Sri

    Only facelift models had flip keys, you can get them for yours though as I've got a flip key on mine now

    I think I will get one for mine a little later on, once I have it on the road . The flip key is much better. Cheers

    Lots of threads around on this one.
    You can only get the flip keys now. Should be about £80 inc. supply, cutting, programming and VAT. Best to ring round a few local stealers as some seem to take the pi$$ with price.
    Make sure it's a 3 button fob.
    HTH.

    Should be nearer £65 all in including programming. £37.50 + VAT for the key, circa £15 for the programming. The key price is the retail price so shouldn't vary between dealers, it's the programming that they can charge what they want for. Any more than £15 and they're taking the pee a bit as it takes literally five minutes.

    Oh yes, some most definitely do!

    Third button is for the boot release, dropped on the facelift remote and the drivers door controls.

    What does the 3rd button on my normal key do? I have pressed it but it did not seem to do anything. I also tried to pop the boot from inside the car from the drivers side but it just beeped.
