I need a spare key for my wifes Scenic 1997 (IR I think) and I need 2 keys for my Laguna (RF I THink) as they have actually worn out.
Easy way to tell the difference... The IR fobs have like a small black bulb looking thing near the key blade. Thats the IR transmitter and doesn't light up or anything. See this pic:

You can see the IR transmitter diode (the bulb looking bit) to the left of the key blade.

RF keys have nothing like this. They have a built in antenna which cannot be seen (and have no need to be seen) as the signal is transmitted through the plastic case.

Hope that helps!
