Lost my only key

Hi everyone, I've lost my only Key to my 916 Spider.

Actually it was stolen and now I'm try to finger out how to go about replacing it.

Can someone please help?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

If the official Alfa Romeo dealer can't help, you'll have to replace locks and ECU. Not an easy job and not easy to find it in ok condition on scrapeyards. There is an option to remove the Alfa Code by reprogramming your ECU (expensive), but you'll still need the new keys/locks. So, there is no easy/cheap solution. In some cases Alfa Romeo can make a replica key by your serial number - yet, if available, I heard it is a slow and expensive process.

 

Today it's quite cheap to make a replica key when you have one in working order (100€ here), so take this as a life lesson.

Thanks Paso, it has been a very stressful life lesson that I will not get over lightly.
I guess I'll have to tow the car to a dealer.
