    rolleyes Flip Key Cost - Garage Comparison

    Hi all, as like many of you im sure have bought a flip key from a garage, i have been wrestling whether to bite the bullet and get a key from the stealers, or to get one online and have it programmed by someone else, to settle my mind i decided to ring round some local garages to me, the price difference is quite interesting:

    Key Cost (3 Button flip key) - Including VAT cutting and programming in order of cost:

    Gloucester: £120
    Cirencester: £115
    Cheltenham: £108.41
    Picador - Chandlers Ford: £100
    Swindon £100
    Avon: £96.03
    Stroud: £94.93
    Yate: £92.00

    And the Lowest priced turned out to be Chippenham - £86.48

    OR

    Get a new key on ebay for appox £40 and find someone who would be willing to program it for me!

    Hope this list is useful to someone

    It always fascinates me that the exact same product from the same company (often even the same franchise - Baylis?) needing the same programming can vary in cost so much. I know they have different overheads, but for a 10 mile drive (distance from Gloucester to Stroud), I'd save £25!
