55 Plate VW Golf Key Needed - Alternatives to Main Dealer?
The wife just bought a 55 plate Golf. All straight and tidy, only problem there is just the 1 key.
I've searched online but as ever conclusive evidence is difficult to pin down. Apparently on Mk5 Golfs it's not possible to recode another key to a car and the only option is the main stealer. I have just popped in to be told it's £215 all in which is utterly ludicrous. Can anyone confirm if there are any other alternatives?
The key (I assume just the blade) is £38, the remote £53 and programming £75 ish net so when retail is calculated with VAT etc it comes to the £215.
I'm presuming they won't be too pleased at me bringing an eBay key along, since it will need a new blade anyway that's only saving the £58 part.
Frankly I'm disgusted by that price so any alternative suggestions welcomed.
