Programming a replacement key

My 996 came with only one key and I have purchased a replacement from an OPC. Does anyone know how long it takes to programme the new key at an OPC?

I was recently quoted half an hour by independent specialist (Cameron Sports Cars).

OPC Hatfield quoted £45 + VAT to programme the key and about 15-20 mins do it while you wait but that was 2 years ago! Here in Western Australia they charge $373 for the head £213 and $220 to programme £126! So bloody expensive

It takes no more than 5 minutes plus the paperwork. But everyone will charge you half an hour plus for labour.

Where did you get the key? That's the costly part.

You need to get the key from the OPC and get them to program for the warranty as the quality if the keys is so poor.  If anyone else programs the key they claim it as faulty programming and void the warranty.

Maybe you should ask specialists? But yeah, I'd do the same and first ask people on the internet and then started to google things. Maybe this site will help: https://chisw.com/tech-interest
