    Vauxhall dealer 60+ for a new car key!! 26th Mar 07 at 3:18 PM
    Because Vauxhall keys have an engine immobiliser chip in the black plastic section, the dealerships seem to be on to a nice little earner if you want a replacement key cut.

    My local dealer has just quoted me over 60 for a combination of 'sending away for the codes' (because I bought it second hand and haven't got them) and the actual cutting.

    I find this outrageous.

    Does anyone know a way round it?
