    Let me know when you looking at this as well as I'd like at least one flip key for my Ibiza, prefer them to the standard keys. North London/Essex/Herts based this one though will come to meet you nps with the rest.

    so are you wanting 2 new full remote flip keys? or are you wanting me to use the transponders from your original keys?

    just so I can sort your price out. Also you'll be paying an even split of my traveling costs, which as there's 4 including you is £35 each

    well either way is as easy. Sometimes it takes as long to remove a transponder from a non remote key then fit it into a flip remote as it does to program a new transponder.

    Money wise you'll save £15 bu using your original transponder

    Well £15 x 2 = £30 which can go towards something else. :)

    ok, well 2 cut & fully programmed flip remotes would be £120 but as you're using your own transponders it's £90 + traveling costs which is £35 each at the moment, i'm waiting for somebody else to confirm. Once he does then it's £25 each

    no worries! didn't get back till 8.45. Wish i'd not bothered going to that other job in Coventry on my way home. Didn't go well, read the SKC from the car but no matter which equipment i tried to program the new key with it wouldn't do it, just kept getting incorrect pin code error message

    So added about 40mins & 1.5hrs onto my trip home for nothing. Oh well, such is life sometimes. All the other 7 cars i've done today went as planned so can't complain :D

    I'll let you know when i'm next down your way. Oh & i'll keep you posted on those cars i've mentioned

    in case anybody requires a new/spare key doing i'm going to be heading South from Huddersfield to Cobham services on either 13th or 14th April. Route is M1 & M25 but can make a detour if need be as long as it's not too far off of my route.

    Doesn't just have to be Seat's, i can do probably 90% of makes of car keys

    Craig are you based in Huddersfield? I'm in lancashire.... have a problem. Got a mk1 Leon 2003 that I need a second key for. RCL would be nice but not a requirement as the only key I have is just a key with no buttons. I can source the fob, blade and get it cut, but can you assist with anything else? Tried to PM you but no idea how...

    I've bought a flip key had it cut (I tried timpsons but they didn't have the tool so they sent me to a place called duplicut)

    Took the transponder out of the remote key and is now in the flip key. My flip didn't come with a button circuit board so tried a bit of d.i.y with my old board. Problem is I only got one key with the car so I only have the remote one. Any suggestions? Dealers want £45 for diagnostics to work out whether a recode is the problem -__- crooks + £120 for the key/recode

    Just want to enjoy my new key lol with working central locking buttons HELP:(:(

    just find somebody near to you that has VCDS(vagcom) then they can recode it for you. I could've done it for you last weekend as I was down that way working
