Second remote key?

Now is this right?

My soon to be delivered Twin Air only comes with one remote key. As both myself and the missus will use it, we need two - what is the point of the non-remote spare? - and the dealers are saying 260 for a second remote?

Anyone else had this wonderful pre-customer experience?

My 500 only came with one remote key as well but I didn't ask for another. 260 seems a bit steep though :/

Re: Second remote key?

I know it's not great really, most cars come with 2 (I think)
However, I actually prefer to use the standard non remote key anyway TBH as I like the fact that its less bulky. It's not too inconvenient to just pop it in the door or lock and turn it ; )

I quite like the non remote key, when I go kayaking I take that key and it's not the end of the world if it gets wet.
