Hi guys,
After recently buying a 2008 focus titanium, I only got 1 key with the car! Can anyone tell me how much ford charge for spares or could anyone suggest a way of getting a spare key, eBay???
Regards,
Chris.

Ford charge silly money so use them as a last resort.
The easiest way is to buy a brand new one off eBay, contact an auto locksmith directly for a quote to cut and code then go from there.
High street key cutters (Timpsons etc.) will cut keys and sometimes clone the immobiliser code but i'd strongly advise against using cloned keys as they can cause immobiliser problems at a later date.

A locksmith will charge at least half of what Ford will.

Get one of these and you'll be ok-

Or a flip key if you want to upgrade a bit-

Google "auto electricians (your region)" then email them all, I did and cheapest quote was 140 for mobile service all in...
