Or Type 2 (Blade) -
Also what colour is the blue cap on your key? Light or dark? You need to ensure the transponder is for the right colour.
With either blade you can add one of these fobs, as long as you fit the correct transponder chip. (It slides in inside a rubber sleeve.)

I am sorry if it sounds like Im asking you/all to do the job for me, i am a real BOOB when it comes to things like this, I have found (in the Car) a Key Code Card with 8 numbers printed on.
"If you lose your key, hand this card into your FORD dealer, who will order you a replacement key.
Is this any significance?

It's read by angles and cuts (most key cutters can read them by looking at them)
Look at a tibbe key from right to left, with the key flat and the plastic on the right, the widest part of the key is the code we're looking at. Imagine this piece to be divided into six segments, looking at the key flat, each of these segments has a degree of slope cut into it, no slope is no.1, slight slope is no.2, medium slope is no.3, max slope is no.4.

Hi - I'm still very confused with this - hopefully you guys will be able to give me some advice!
I have a 2007 mkII Focus with only one non-remote key. I lost my remote key some time ago.
Is there any way I can get a remote key fob on the cheap? Could I purchase a cheap key fob from eBay, get it cut and then use the twist-in-the-ignition-four-times trick?

Ford removed the twist add procedure from the Mk2 onwards.
Even with that, to add your own keys on earlier focus you would need two keys to unlock the system anyway.
To clarify- the routine to add a new key to your car you need to buy a new, uncut key from eBay and call around some auto locksmiths for quotes to cut and code the key to your car.
Some have used Timpsons but personally I've never been impressed/confident with their work or attitude.
