Hey guys i need to get another key for my 03 VY SS as the one i have is looking sad. As well as i need a spare too i got quoted $199 for two keys one brand new head with new key the other would be a brand new head but using my old key.Is that a good price or does any one know a better place to get new keys on the Gold coast. Thanks

Mr Minit does Holden Keys

$30 metal key blade
$90 Remote head.

Depends on where you are, some other locksmiths may be able to do cheaper.

If you're with NRMA Mr Minit (used to, don't know about now) do 2 for 1.

You can pick up brand new genuine 2 or 3 button remotes on ebay (see link below) for around $50 delivered. You just need to get the new key cut and the fob programmed. Most locksmiths can do both. Phone around to get the best price for programming and cutting.. The key in the link below will also fit VR through to VZ models, some models use the 3 button remote, some use the 2 button one.. You can replace an original 2 button remote with a 3 button one, it will work the same, but the 3rd button (remote boot open button ) wont work.

Thanks for that info Brett_jjj but i went to a Mr minit locksmith today had a new key cut and coded.But it nearly ended up me calling a mobile auto locksmith cause the new key stuffed my ignition barrel.$240 for the call out and a new barrel But i managed to free it back up with my old key after that i got a refund.I got the hell out of there I think il just ring up Holden tomorrow and see how much there doing keys for?.

I just got the genuine key head that Brett mentioned from ebay and had that programmed to the car.

Used the original key blade and the new head & screws, which was $50 delivered (same day but I am in NSW)
