Stolen keys!
« on: January 16, 2020, 01:36:00 pm »
Have my main car key stolen so I called mazda to get a new key and the spare key recoded and they quoted £570, is there any way of getting it done cheaper or is getting it Done by mazda the best option?

For the price, you need to compare with a auto locksmith, but it should come much cheaper than that. You need to decode the existing keys and do it again. Still somebody can unlock the door mechanically I think.

From a quick search:

I think a lot of people use Timpson:

Or maybe it is part of your insurance or road assistance:
