    Cheers for your replyís guys. Just as a quick update, main dealer quoted 253 plus vat supplied. I spoke to my local auto locksmith today (took a search on google) and he came back with 150 all in, coded and tested. I will let you know how it goes.

    The car has been faultless so far. The wife loves it. Picked it up in thick snow on Friday and it was great. Got a few hundred miles under on Saturday and again it even made me smile driving it. Very nice for a little car!

    I have been accused of being an old git for remembering the 70's Polo advert with Bert whats his name. Didn't think Snowrider was much younger that me to be fair.

    You're no old git Si ... you just have a great memory for nostalgia.

    The Polo is still going but sadly Burt not... he's blown bled.

    Spotted a Mini Metro driving by on the ring road this AM - had to double take...

    Yep.

    Bought a couple of blanks from ebay for about a fiver - got them cut to the lock then programmed them - posted the method up on here - search for 'adaptions'

    Then I could get rid of the chip that was taped to my transponder barrel.


    Pics of the beetle?

    I quite like them - especially the RS. They can handle well

    That's nice. I rarely look online for cars or vans etc .... but I did last night and I was genuinely shocked at the pricing - you can buy so much for your money these days. Diesels have plummeted - a mid-engined v10 tdi conversion is almost viable with a lot of donor choice.
