I've just been quoted north of £200 to get a spare remote key for my 2003 Citroen, and £70 for a spare without remote, by Timpson. The car cost me £300! Does anyone know of a cheaper way to get a spare key?
Ideally I'd get one with a remote as the boot doesn't have an exterior keyhole but I'd settle for just having a spare key full stop without paying £70...
The trouble (as I discovered recently) that even with cars of that age, the "manual" keys will still have a transponder chip in it that the new one will need to match, or else the immobilizer will not let you start the car.
There are a few online key replacement sites, but from my searches, they didn't prove to be an awful lot cheaper.
Figured as much. I guess I'll just try to not lose the key then...
