depends what you got and how well made it is, some are worse than others no doubt, but overall adding a spare key doesnt need to cost hundreds of pounds. even buying an official ford one, you can buy the bits online cheap enough and get the whole Ford branded key made up for around £70 or so, Ford would charge you about £175

Indeed they would.
They always insist on doing a diagnostic on the car as well so add another £90+ to that.

The key conversion I bought for my focus ghia mk 1.5 (I have 2 working keys) it came at 1 and I've been fiddling with it since. 1 of the 2 screws wire down after trying to unscrew it. I had to break it open slightly then the blade wouldn't flick. So I close it with 1 screw and that wore down, so I had to break it open to get my transponder back out. It's now in 4 bits and broken. Waste of £6, they say u get what u pay for. I'm miffed off

im going to leave negitive feedback

Cant say I blame you, I guess it really is a case of mixed success.

 

I would suggest though if you want an actual flip key for your main key, go down the route I did (see signature and post above) its the cheapest way to get it done. then just keep your current key as the spare.

Well I've got 2 working remote keys already for my mk1.5 so I just want a 3rd flip type, which I'm told I can encode myself using the 2 keys in the ignition method and just need to get a new key cut really.

i was thinking about this one http://m.ebay.co.uk/...1299?nav=SEARCH

If your car is a MK1 or 1.5 then you can indeed programme your own immobiliser.

I found someone who will cut a new key for £10. Not bad really as all for under £40
