funnily enough i went to the dealer in oxford friday for a rad cap for my e36 323 vert, and while i was there i asked how much for a new key..... needless to say i fell over after he told me £133 fecking quid of course.

but he needed the reg no. for the car to check the key and he produced the same details for me too and promptly said i could keep the printouts....

cheers to the dealer...

£133 - did you get a gold plated one? I hope so for that money! I got one at the dealer for my E36 323 Convertible for £36. All dealers are franchises so it pays to ring around for prices.

I got one of those little printouts for my old Compact when I went to the Main Dealer for a paint code, they're pretty interesting and I keep meaning to get one for my current car.

I also received one from my friendly parts dept, didn't quite soften the blow of the bill he then produced but some good info nonetheless ;)

A couple of months later I found another type of build/spec doc under the rear seat :thumbsup
