For 16 years i have ordered keys successfully.
Today at 3 am They rang me to inform me that no more keys can be sent outside the UK.

These knobs at LR are trying everything to put us off their cars.

Yes, in theory Motores Satanicos in San José sells them, but they give you a really hard time, charge you an arm and a leg and are most awkward.

So. Until Sloth has the solution (3 for me please) please friends
- enable EKA
- practise
- make sure you have a spare LH door lock from Marty

No my friend that is exactly what I have been doing for the last 16 years.
They now want a copy of a UK v5.

Different frequency.
Yes they are still available. I bought one 11 months ago.
But they will only sell them to their stealerships.
Hence motores satánicos in SJO sell 315 Mhz ones but only with CR paperwork.

NAS fobs operate on 315 MHz, UK, and most of the rest of world, operate on 433 MHz. I suspect that there are no further 315 MHz ones left while there still are 433 ones available. Here you need to take your V5 (registration document) showing you as the owner along with proof of identity to a main dealer before they will order one for you. Don't blame LR, blame the FCC for ignoring what the rest of the world did when they allocated the radio spectrum making the US incompatible with just about every other country in the world.
Richard all of the Americas have 315 mhz.
Hence as I said before, they are also selling these keys here.

Or, LR UK sold them for any country for years. I have ordered a lot of them and now in true Brexit spirit they don't ship to France either.

They have gone so nuts that now they don't even allow Allmakes to sell original LR parts outside the UK.

This is unfortunately not a joke.

Sorry overlooked the other question.
14 months ago I sold my last, new 315 mhz one to a friend, who bought a p38 without a working fob. This one I had ordered for someone else who chose not to pay.

Had to get the barcode converted in Cyprus and programming was done quickly.

After that I ordered one more new one for a client. So they still had them last November.

I have no idea why they are playing up.
For other models that have the Lucas 10as alarm I order a 433 mHz remote and buy an alarm 2nd hand.

Dear Bolt, we all could order them last year. As I said above.
The problem is that LR UK started playing up recently
