    Give Rockdale locksmiths a call. They also sell them on eBay and can do the programing for you.

    At my local holden dealer it is $44 to program, but it always pays to shop around as prices vary.

    Thats crazy. I got mine from a Holden dealer. Cost me about $100 for a key head, programming and a new key blank.

    $135 here in ACT......

    I also need one for a VTII. Only got 1 key when I brought it a few weeks back.

    Local GMH dealer today quoted $135 for the key, head and programing. But then again, most things are more expensive here so no doubt a bit cheaper in Sydney.

    Try Mr Minit. $99 for a new key, keyhead, cut and programmed. All done in a couple of minutes too :)
    The cheapest i've heard is $80 for the above by Northside Locksmiths (in Brisbane).
    Also, not all Mr Minits can program them. Some don't have the equipment but can still cut them.

    Cost of key head from ebay $31.
    Cost of getting reprogrammed at rockdale locksmiths $25.
    Not giving Holden dealership $140 for the same????

    PRICELESS!!!!

    Wagon Man thanks for the heads up on these guys it only took them 5 mins to do, and they only needed the key that works, when the dealership wanted the car for the whole day!!!!:bow: :bow: :dance: :dance: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

    Got it done for my VX for $125 at a Holden dealer. Might be pricey but just like the fact I have some sort of guarantee if something goes wrong.
