I did a search on google and found a couple of sites that might help you out.

Many thanks, <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>
I'm looking into this and will post result for future reference.
Members of this group and clubcento have been very helpfull. It went from £800 for a new red one and £300 for a blue to £25 for a blue and £250 for a red. Think i'll just get a couple of blues to be safe.
Thanks again.

Most of this is specific to cinq/sei, but blues can be cloned and new reds made up. I understand Timpsons (amongst others) can make blues from reds for about £20 - but you'd have to ask about blues from blues, apparently that's a bit hit n'miss with their systems.

Simon - who quoted u £250 for a red - cos that is a really good price

to get a red one created u need a new lock fit (approx £30) ECU £270 x2 as u need 2 of these, plus labour costs (£69 an hr) & VAT - it adds up to roughly over £700... B()ll()CKS!

I have a full set of locks, 1x red key and 2x blue keys, plus the ecu from puug, looks like they could be worth something :D
