There are two options, one is just the cable (if you already have the 5as and fobs you can use) the other is everything

200/400 members get £5 discount on the above - codes in the usual place, or pm me for it

This is an excellent kit - thank you for making it available :angel

Thanks for your support. The pricing was the hardest part. its quite time consuming to hand make the cable, and the other parts are becomming less common than they once were. Hopefully we will be able to hold the price for as long as possible.

Main thing is to get a supported solution out there. We possible have the kit now to reprogramme infrareds (if I can get it to work). But, new fobs for that are nearly the price of this kit, and its no where near a good system. With this kit, you could get replacement fobs programmed by pretty much anyone with any of the popular key programming tools.

Just a bump for anyone who has not seen this, and is struggling with a car with infrared remotes

I've had this kit fitted for several months now and don't give it a second thought, it's that good :cool
