So I got a new key for the VN today, can't say I'm disappointed...
HOLDEN COMMODORE CHEVROLET 2 3 BUTTON REMOTE KEY SHELL - eBay Keyless Entry Remote, Safety, Security, Car Parts, Accessories, Cars, Bikes, Boats. (end time 19-May-10 13:43:47 AEST)
(Mine isn't a chevy one thank god :P)
Even though it's hollow and always will be, I love it because it's so much better to hold on to over the original crappy keys - My hands would be considered by most as freakishly large..
$15 plus the $19 the locksmith charged me to cut it, not too bad.
I am totally the opposite, the smaller and the lesser the keys the better.
