spare key

Hi guys,

i'm looking for a spare key for my impreza 2006 sti, and ain't paying the hundreds of pounds to the dealership to get it.

I can pick up a key for an 08 impreza R, which looks visually identical to mine.
If i get this and get it re-programmed and a new key cut, will it work with my car? or are there other differences between this keyfob and mine ?

thanks for any help.

david

Re: spare key

Interesting 1 wouldnt be 100% but Id be fairly confident that if you got it reprogrammed and the key cut it might work but be interested and question is will it de-activate the immobiliser when you want to start car and will it work. Hope it does work cause you'll have saved a lot by nothing having to buy your key from the dealer the robbers
