Default I need a cheap replacement key! Help!

I had my jacket stolen at a bar last week and they had my Celica O4 plate keys inside them. They were the only pair I had. Having rang around I can't get a quote for a replacement set for less than £350.00. Does anyone know if there is a way to get them done for cheaper.

Regards,

A large screwdriver and a larger hammer.

But Gary is right, always have a set that stays in the house and have another set made for your keyring.

There's no better feeling than seeing something you made work

1998 Honda Civic EX (D16Y8) "The Daily Beater"
1985 Toyota Celica GT (7MGTE) "The Old Guy" SOLD
1991 Nissan 240SX (S13 Coupe) "The Money Pit" Sold to fund other projects
1994 Honda Civic EX (D16Z6) Soon to be "Turbo AutoCross Missile"

Always have a spare set of keys so that in crucial time you can use it and not spend extra money on locksmith or dealer.

Locksmiths have the key price half of the dealer but first test the many times that it must be programmed properly or not.

It can also damage the lock so getting it done through locksmith services is a suitable option.
