    Default What year did the flip keys come in???

    Hi All

    Just wondering, as im going to view/test drive what will hopefully be my new 05 2.2i Direct design, next week. Will it be a flip key...... its on 05 so I would have thought it would be but does anybody know what year the regular keys were phased out???

    Thanks
    Pete

    Yep, facelifts got the flip keys.

    If you buy an Astra or Zafira, you get one flip key and one normal key!

    you can only buy the flip key from vauxhall,as to telling if the car came with a flip key or not the blade style is the way to tell as vauxhall went from a h series to a z series,the z series there is a grove down the middle which is shaped for the profile where the h series which would have been the old style the key profile is on the flat surface but to the side and open if you get what i mean
