    Right i havent got a spare key and iv locked myself out the car a couple of times no (dont ask) lucky my mate has the tools to break in .

    Phoned dealers and quoted me a new key for around £100 + £25 coding!

    BUT Blueie thinks he has a plan!:scared2: There is plenty of keys going cheap on ebay could i re-code one of them for my car?

    Also could i buy the new style key? As mine is the 2004.

    Thanks in advance:thumbsup:
