I probably wouldn't have bothered if Renault hadn't printed "Vel Satis" on the card, and I knew it had been lost locally. I just didn't fancy trying to explain to the insurers how somebody managed to nick the car without forcing entry (or, if after getting Renault to re-program the remaining keycards), someone was able to gain entry through the emergency key.

It was a real result when they told me it was all gratis!

Having to slum it in an '06 plate Corsa 1.8SXi just now ...(the only drawback).

Lesson has been well learned though!


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
