Who quoted you that. If it is the IR plip type then at Renault the key blade's are about 15, the IR plip/fob is about 80 and coding is about 50.

I know this as I am ordering a new plip this morning and this was what I was quoted at a Dealer in Manchester and one in Glasgow (Home and work).

I am not sure if they use your old key to cut the new one though for 15. If you have lost it then it might be new locks tbh.

Might be worth giving Renault a call and ask how you can get a replacement key.

Then again, if you say you lost it it might be worth getting the locks changed. And unless the car is in poor condition I would say it is worth more than 20
