    Yes, providing you've got the serial number - which is on a piece of cardboard in the plastic box where you store the non locking bolts and key.

    yes is is but you need the number of it. Should be on a bit of card in the case the lockers come in. Without that it may get expensive.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Just had to get a new key myself. Main dealer's attitude sucked though. They wouldn't even take an order for the key over the phone. OK, I can understand when I collect it I'd need the V5 etc, but to order one ..... ? To go in is around a 40 mile round trip, plus having to knock off work early !

    I'm keeping my eyes open on e-bay for another set in my number - dealers charged me £25 just for the key

    Yes you need the number as everyone else said, if not you will need to either take it somewhere that will hit a special socket on (it cost me £5 per nut) or you could hit a smaller socket on it, you will need to replace them all then so hope you have the number.
