Thanks guys. That's what I thought.

I bought my 3 from an out of town dealership. The spare they had for my vehicle was not available upon the sale. I was at my local dealer today and there was a miscommunication with a service tech. My dealer agreed to pay for a brand new fob/cut key.

Was completed at the local dealership at the out of town dealership's expense.

I'd say.

Our dealer wants £300 ($450) for a new remote entry fob (spare)

Yea it wasn't cheap. For those interested in the cost of a spare...

Transmitter/Keyless: $129.43
Key/Blank: $20.00
Labor (Cut Key/Program Transmitter): $110.00

I'm sure prices vary by dealer and the amount on my order was most likely cost price. I've heard of replacement transmitters go for $400-500.

Up here we get two fob systems..... wondering if they figure that most people want so just another way to increase profit. Get two .. keep one.... and sell it later for $450...... . I would check to see what the advertising brochures say on how many come with the car ???
