    Default Flip Key

    been quoted £51 inclusive for a new flip key for my 52 plate veccy, from a stealer, cheapest of all local ones.

    somehow lost just the blade from one of my main keys, had to get a lift home from work to get the spare key.

    does anybody know if thats a good price or should i be able to get it cheaper than that?

    that is picador in chandlers ford, all the others are more expensive, preson on the phone said they get the keys from someone else which makes it cheaper.

    stealers normally charge £35+vat for programming alone and about £65 all in for key and programming so the price is good

    £82....?!! WTF! its amazing how the information each dealer gives you is different and also how the price can be so different aswell!
    The guy at my local garage (basingstoke) said about £115 all in for the flip key - the guy in Chandlers ford reckons you cant get them..
    Dammit!
