Default Cheaper alternative for new key?

So my dog chewed my only key, obviously the key it self is fine but the fob is mangled. Does anyone know if there is a cheap fob out there? D.I.Y kit maybe?

I tried an ebay flip style one but it was rubbish, maybe there are better quality types, just avoid those cheap ones.

My eBay one is pretty good, fiddly and PITA to get the spring right, but works fine. Lined up with the factory key insert and haven't had a problem with it for 2 years.

I also use a flip one from ebay, one of the best mods I ever did!

As Freetripper mentioned, they can be a little fiddly to put together but if you get it right, they are well worth the couple of bucks.

An entirely new key is about $80 at Burson.

You'd need a locksmith to cut it but if you have the other two keys you can code it yourself.

Thanks Timbotrog, I seem to remember selling you a soft top many years ago.
