    Default Is this true concerning Flip Keys

    Picked up a three button flip key from Ebay - in very good condition and never coded so they say.

    I asked my wife to go to Vauxhall to go and ask how much it would cost for a new blade and to be coded to car. My wife went into our local Rowcliffes and spoke to someone who then told her that they do not sell the blade on its own. They only sell the whole flip key for £56.58 then to get it programmed would cost an extra £35.

    Is this true about not being able to change the blade on the flip key or are they trying to rob us? As usual your help and advice would be much appreciated.

    Look on the net for locksmiths - they'll do it.

    it is possible but it's not cheap or really worth it..

    the £35 coding is a joke as well....it takes under 5 mins to do....

    You can get the blanks on e-bay, also my local key cutting place does them too.

    Mark, I know its a 5 min job and was told when I asked its a standard charge as they need to unplug the machine from the job it may be on to do the key! My dealers only justification was its cheaper then VW charge! If that OP-com turns out it can do keys etc it will be very useful if a few people get it.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
