I went to a Nissan dealer, but I got them to do a "trial" run first. My local dealer was pretty good, they tried cutting one of the cheapo Micra ones first with their machine before cutting the GTR key so that they could check to see if it was going to work (did not pay for that by the way).

I went to the dealer as I bought the key through them, actually cheaper than the ebay's etc.

Nissan main dealer will do it.
I phoned first and they were quite happy to do a trial key free of charge before doing the GTR key.

A R33 key blank is about £30, an X-Trail key blank is about triple that, so its not that bad. Get your original key copied if you can, it always works better than cutting by key number.

If you accidentally lock your key in the boot, you can call a guy who will come out and cut you a new one from your door lock..

Costs a hundred quid mind..

Live and learn eh..

I had my NISMO keys cut by the local cobblers wife!

She said "no guarantees" that it would work, but she took her time and hey presto! PERFECT!

Best bit......it cost £3.00!

Whats the difference then between the Skyline key and the 300zx one ? I got one cut locally from a cobblers for my 300 and it was £2.50 or summin, He even went out and checked and adjusted it so it worked properly.

i really want to get the R34 style for my R33, but was told they could not
cut it. Has anyone sucessfully done this and what type of alteration was
necessary to make it work?
