I think Renault got their fingers burnt a few years back regarding cloned keys, etc - so maybe they are being extra careful. It's the old story if you want security they make you pay and if it waas dead easy anyone could walk up to your car write down the Reg No. and Vin No. and walk into the nearest dealer and your car would be gone. Renault ain't the only manufacturers to have this type of security

I f I was buying a second hand car now-a-days and there was only one key rpvided I would be looking for a good discount to ensure the cars security system was secure and therefore no disputes with the insurers in the event of theft
Currently in madnoel10's garage:
Honda Civic 1.4l
