    Does my 06 freelander key have a transponder in it. I have a separate 2 button remote for the locking.

    I believe that your key does indeed contain a transponder chip to interface with the immobiliser.

    How would one go about getting a spare key ? Not bothered about fob, just need a spare key for emergencies.

    Land Rover, £106.16. If it needs fettling an extra £72.00 for the workshop laddies to sort it. That price is three days old.

    If you're lucky you may find someone who will say that they can do one for less. However, if you want one from my local LR dealer, the price above stands. And no, I'm not laughing.

    That's actually quite cheap by modern standards. A new key for the wife's 2003 BMW cabrio cost over £300 to supply and program. So under £200 is a reasonable price. Even a key for a Ford Focus costs more than the FL1 key.
