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.
