Hi people,

Ive just recently upgraded to a flip key and through trial and error know how to do it successfully.
I am thinking of offering a complete flip key conversion (incl providing flip key, tranponder extention and key cutting).
How many people would be interested and what are people willing to pay?

Which flip key would you stock to use?

Also how much roughly will you be charging to provide this service?

I would use a normal 2 button flip key with the logo honda pressed into the plactic at the front and an honda badge emblem at the back, looks very neat and tidy and most importantly a genuine honda flip key (if they privided it wicith the civic!)
Price wise Im thinking about the £65 mark as to do the job properly the key blade has to be laser cut to perfection and the extension of the transponder is a very delicate job.

By the way, needless to say I would rather post it to your relatives or friends address to ensure your privacy and peace of mind.
I dont want to know the address where your car is kept over night!!!

That include the recorded/insured postage back to me?
I would give you my work address to post it back to.
To be honest that's the only thing I would feel sketchy about posting my key off...
Not because of you but because of royal mail lol

I'll keep an eye out as I would be interested in this (again when I have the money spare lol)

So you'd convert the existing key? I only have one key, would you able to do 2 keys ? If so any deal for doing 2 ?

And turn around time for conversion, as I'd be out of a car due to only having one key!!

VERY professional of you, a post like this speaks VOLUMES about someone...
I'm definitely interested, depending on price!

I’m interested, however, I already have the casing and the flip key laser cut. All i need doing is the transponder being extended. I have already made a botched job of my spare key!!! :facepalm:

Hi all,

Sorry about delayed reply.
I have encountered some problems, I tried doing a mates for him but the key works perfect in the ignition but it wont for some reason fit in the door barrels-mystery, trying to figure it out at the moment!
Will keep you guys posted.
I dont want to offer this service untill I know I can to it perfect as otherwise it would become a headache for you guys and I dont want that!
The hardest part is getting the key blade cut perfect
