Well, back safe and well albeit with a battered credit card!
Well impressed with the Focus. Comfortable and fairly economical. We managed an average of nearly 42 mpg over the 5 days which included the approx 120 mile drive each way and then a couple of days scooting around Inverness. Not bad for 2 adults and 3 boys in the back along with a full boot on the way home. Even got the 'Average MPG' up to 45 at one stage on the way home
Thanks to FOCA I found the key cutter in the Victorian Market. He wanted £56 to get a plain replacement key cut, I thought(wrongly obviously) that you could get replacement remote keys. I told him I would think about it and went to Timpsons around the corner. He told me he could do a key for £35 but he didn't have any in stock but to try the other Timpsons in the Eastgate Centre. They had ones in stock but he asked me if I had tried unlocking the door just by using the key ie NOT by remote. I said that I hadn't to which he replied "Go and give it a try, if the alarm sounds when you open the door using the key I can't make a copy!" So I went away and tried it and guess what? Alarm sounded! So still no spare key!
So the next plan of attack? In May, Mrs Turvey and I are flying down to Glasgow for a gig, Thunder, Whitesnake and Journey if you're interested. Hopefully I'll find someone who can do it there. The only thing I'm wary of is getting a key done down there and not being able to test it right away and flying home and finding it doesn't work or even worse finding out that the original key has somehow been disabled. Don't know if it's possible to do but if it is, believe me it'll happen to me
