    Unhappy price of flip key

    Just rang my local vx dealer to find out how much one of these flip keys will cost me that i've been reading about. guess what £72 inc. VAT. they might good but there not that good!! £72 can buy more important things.

    Should only be about £62. The key costs £38 + VAT (that price should be set). Programming at my dealer (and other places) is £15+VAT. Your place is obviously charging more for the programming!

    Try another dealer (if you're happier with the £62 price).

    LOL @ Rushy

    I'm a bit err um with mine, I use the normal one mainly, I suppose its a nice touch if you are going out somewhere in the car, but as a working car the flip is a pain.
