Re: An alternative
Reminds me of last time I had a key cut for my old Mitsubishi.
The conversation went like this...
Him: "Sorry Mate, can't copy this key, my machine can't read the transponder"
Me: "It doesn't have a transponder"
Him: "It's for security. There's a chip in the key that talks to the immobiliser"
Me: "I know, but this is an old car, it doesn't have an immobiliser"
Him (scoffing): "Of course it does, you can't just turn the key and start the engine"
Me: "Yes you can, that's exactly how it works"
Him:"Trust me mate, it's not going to work"
Me: "Please could you just cut it for me anyway?"
