if its for a scoob mate, its 33 including coding from the main dealer , well thats for a classic so you may as well go there, if its for the dak side machine its prob best to go to mitsubishi, cos it will need coding anyway

For me, my key is just a key, no built in code or anything.. The alarm is on the key fob which takes care of the immobliser and so on... I guess I could ask down at the local as I need a spare key anyways.... Maybe it might depend on the age and type of car Gareth?

Are the keys chipped, if so think it is main dealer only....

I know my ex needed a spare for the honda civic I bought her, honda quoted her £90 as it had the immobliser in it as well, hence the huge price tag.. That was 4 years ago...

Re: Spare Car Key Cutting

I got one off ebay for 9.50 and got it cut at my local locksmith.
Its a genuine key and works well it has the space for the transponder but i only use it as a spare as my car is an import there is no need for the transponder as the imobiliser is sorted by the aftermarket alarm.
