im sold, it sounds better to purchase the new flip key as you said,
and get the blade cut and then reprog followed by re coding the transponder my self.
did not think that such a small thing as a key could be so difficult,
and after asking the price at the dealership i nearly passed out,
as my key is working again ( fingers crossed) i am still getting a new key, just in case and in the back of my mind if i lose or leave the key in jeans and they get washed, then i would only have one working key and a trip to the dealers,
thanks for your help

just out of curiosity, could i purchase a second hand key code 98AG15K601AC from ebay and change my horse shoe to the ebay key and then just re prog this,

as i understand from owners manual that reprog is to set a new remote key to operate central locking and recode is for immobiliser.
to reprog you need only one coded key but for recode you need two coded keys
that this correct, thanks bryan

thanks , just popped in to halfords to get new battery just in case,
they dont know what battery i need so told to open fob and find out, i think i read some where you dont get long to change battery before you have to reprog key,
secondly asked about a new key and if i could reprog my self they said new key only from main dealer and no i can not reprog a new key, even tho i have two keys,
good news is fob not worked all day to open car but will lock it via remote, gets home and locked car and tried to un lock and it worked, tried four times and it now works,
going to change battery when i can open fob and know how long i get before it goes pear shaped.
and see what happens
