Anyone consider buying this flip key?

HONDA CIVIC TYPE R TYPE S CHROME FLIP KEY REMOTE +PROG on eBay, also, Honda, Car Parts, Cars, Parts Vehicles (end time 10-Sep-08 00:45:21 BST)

I checked the compatibility with the numbers specified on our key and they are exactly the same. Im thinking to give it a try since i don't want to destroy my existing key. BTW I have already purchased a flip key case but im afraid of dismantling the transporter. The only problem I can see with this one is the fading of the chrome buttons.

Maybe yes. But consider damaging your key. This will cost any cheaper than order another key from honda. I wrote to him and negotiating the price since is great opportunity for him to sell here.

It wouldn't be too bad if the postage wasn't so bloody expensive, £12 to post a key????

I thing he is earning money over the postage. Considering that is an envelope he can't ask for 12 pounds.

I already got that and also made the conversion yesterday.
It's pretty nice and by no means as expensive as ordering a key from the dealer.
It cost me about 20GBP in total, I made the switch myself (not recommended). :)

From where did you got it? The guy offered me 35 GBP including postage.

I got the non-programmable one and it was about 16GBP including shipping.
The programmable one is useless to me since my dealer can't program it.
I removed the transponder from the original key and moved it into the new one.
THIS IS the one I have.

Hi, want to buy one like this, but to fit mine in it do I have to do any soldering? or just have to open my keys and place the remote on it? Thanks

Yes, in my case soldering was required because the transponder is located on the PCB of the key and it has to be moved closer to the new key blade (there is a special slot for it) and also 2 wires have to be soldered to power it.

Why do you have 3 buttons on it? What's the third button for?

I believe it's for trunk/boot release in case the vehicle has this feature.
In my case at least it doesn't, I had to install it separately and open it using the car alarm remote.

I see, but is there civic with that feature installed from the factory?

Do Honda cut keys as part of their service department? Failing that can anyone recommend a reliable laser-cutting place in Birmingham?
