im a cobbler and i work for a company called timpsons, we do most car keys and now with the new ad-900 machines its possible without the red key to copy you a new one just from a spare. just pop into one of our shops and ask them to read the transponder in your key. there are a few we dont do but the majority are fine. they need to read the transponder before they can tell if they can do it. the keys usually range from £35 to £140. hope this helps mate.
