Getting a car key cut

    Basically my friend pretty much laughed in my face when i said i wanted to go to the local key cutter to get a spare car key cut, he says i will have to go to the dealer and pay a fair bit to get it done. I always assumed any key cutter could do it?

    Its an R reg Saxo and the key looks pretty basic to me so i cant see why i would need a dealer.

    Anyone had experience? I dont wanna be laughed at by the bloke at the key cutting place too. lol.


    it is difficult if its a key for remote locking because they have a chip in them as i took mine to a local cutter and he nearly broke it trying to get the front off to change the battery but if its a basic key then yes you can go to a local key cutter. if its just a basic key they are quite cheap if you want one that has a chip you could be paying quite a lot even from a key cutter.

    Yeah its just a basic key, no chip or anything. Cheers, i will wander down tommorow and see

    i had an old motor took my spare key and they done while i waited £8 ta very much:thumbsup:, but check it right away coz car keys are more complicated. but if its a new car who knows:?. maybe just :roll:maybe i'll drive a new(ish) car one day

    they have a machine to do it in our local asdas!! i think its about £6-8
