    Yep, it's possible - did it on mine, and the flip key is now the only replecement version that you can get from Vx for a Vectra C/Signum

    Forget the eBay ones as you'll end up paying more/not being able to get it done once you have to get the key cut separately. The key and fob all cut from Vx costs Around £40 + VAT. Programming should be around £15 + VAT but this varies wildly between dealers - and some dealers will try and tell you the key costs more. All in you're looking around £65 - some guys have been quoted £100+ so be wary and ring around.

    Search for flip key on here - you'll find looooads of threads.

    I have!! but you have to watch some of the spare blades as there not the right one's then to find a dealer that won't try to rob you for the tech2 £18-£35 depending on dealer.HTH

    Flip key for us was £45.20 from dealers - unsure of programming cost as it was all in with our new CIM and BCM + fitting.

    Hi
    These prices that were calling "about the norm" is that for a 3 button remote? all the ones ive seen on ebay are 2 button. You think a 3 button one (i.e. doors and boot) will cost slightly more?

    Thanks
    Pete
