75+vat for the key and 68+vat to get it coded
so, in theory you're getting a bargin!
80 and 50 I was quoted. It is shocking that they can charge this, might drop the office of fair trading an email and see what they say as we have no choice really of what to do, ha.

Just nipped to Yell now, ha. Can't see me having any luck though tbh. It is getting worse too. Need to do it sooner rather than later. I have put it off for long enough, ha.

EDIT:~ I might have just found someone. The advert says codes transponder keys I;ll give them a ring tomorrow I think
Currently in Mike11's garage:
An LPG powered Ford Focus ST170.
