Renault Laguna II - Keycard

Hi All,

Just thought I'd post a little rant to let you all know how shocked I am at Renault dealers prices.

I just phoned my local Renault stealership in Cardiff for a price on a new keycard for my Lag II. I've read threads on this site saying total cost at most dealers was around the 130 -140 mark, a bit steap but could live with that. I did also read one thread where someone managed to get one for a little over 100.
Well I was shocked when they told me a price. They wanted 82 to programme a new key and then 75 for the key itself, plus VAT which would make it close to 185 all in. I then tried another dealer close by in Tonypandy which came back at 175 all in, a bit cheaper but still way way too much.
If anyone can supply me with a phone number of a dealer where I might be able to get a card cheaper I would be very greatful. I don't mind if it's miles away as I would much prefer to spend the additional cash on petrol getting there than in the dealers Profit & Loss account!!!!

On the up side though my car is due for a cambelt change, managed to get that for 24.70 bargin!!!!!
Currently in Mikey's garage:
1996 Mazda MX-3 V6, a 2002 1.2 8v Fiat Punto active (the Wife's!) and a 1998 Suzuki GN 125. Used to own a 2002 Laguna II Dynamique 1.8 16V (Now Sold yey!)
