Darren SCF777Hi John, On my previous 987.1 I needed a 2nd Key as previous owner lost it and my memory muscle told me £ 200 or so no big deal ,with Porsche it was not the case if you want this done correct (PAC codes can be the challenge as dealers not supposed to release this info now) , so if you want the key to function as it should deactivating the alarm from the button etc I would suggest an OPC job , I did not use OPC as my indie said this was a simple job with hindsight the issue of a 987.1 and this type of key block being discontinued I had to change to 987.2 key block (for both keys) and then my DME/ECU would not take the new key coding and then the DME/ECU was bricked in the process and a world of pain followed I had to buy a recon DME/ECU it all got sorted in the end @ £1,285 ...I wish I had gone to my OPC. To sort I had to buy 2 Keys the 987.2 ones and a recon DME/ECU and labour costs and coding lol. In summary if you want new Key 2 to function exactly how it should and be the official matching key block I would cost up via your OPC ,based on my experience...good luck
