I was under the impression that the oval keys have a chip in them.This activates the immobiliser and not the key blip like on the earlier models(rectangle key).I could be wrong though.......take the key apart and see if there is a chip in it before you go too far.The chip sends a message to the aerial around the ignition barrel to switch of the immobiliser.
I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
