Hi everyone,

I am new here and would like to seek your advice on a cheaper way of getting a spare key for my Mini Cooper (R56, 2010, 1.6litre diesel, with N47C16A engine) which I bought second hand and comes with only one key. I know the best way to order a second key is to go to the Mini dealer but it is terribly expensive. The garage from which I bought the car recommended an auto locksmith which claims to be able to provide a new and fully functioning key. I did a little research on google and got the impression that since the update of the 2nd generation key it is almost impossible for a third party to programme the transponder and the dealer is the one option. Has anyone here who managed to get a spare key without relying on the Mini dealer? Any advice would be extremely appreciated!
