    ... only one key, some people are careless! :3sadwalk:

    options?

    Stealer?????
    Ebay for key & Stealer to program it?

    The ebay route may be cheaper but I cant help but think it will be problematic. There seem several different part numbers for the keys and can a previously programmed key be reprogrammed to different immob III?

    You should be able to source a fob and uncut blade on ebay germany.

    It will be no problem to code a previously coded key to your car as, in theory, that is what the dealer will be doing with your existing key.

    When you get a new key coded they need all the keys and they then recode them all to the ECU together. This means that should the previous owner turn up with their key they'll be able to unlock the door but not start the engine.

    Having said that, you may be better off going to the dealer to order a new key anyway - but they'll probably charge you 70 or 80 quid plus a bit of labour for the recoding.
