Default Duplicate key for Getz

Could someone please direct me to a reliable key duplicator? I have lost my spare key for the Getz and need to get one more made. I dont want to go to local key-makers and going to the showroom for such a small job is pure waste of time.

Please suggest someone in Fort or Andheri area.

what ever you do, do not make a key in the area you live in. Lets say you live in Malad, make a key in Bandra or so. This would be a small measure to keep your car safe.

This brought a smile to my face!

Suppose he goes to a malad key maker, How would he know that nishantgandhi is also from malad?

They won't give you easily. I experienced it. Try to check with the service guys they may give you unofficially

Its better idea to get the locks changed,i did the same for my IKON rather than getting it duplicated from elsewhere why take chances for some bucks.

For safety reasons, source your key only from an authorised Hyundai center.

Every Hyundai key comes with a tag with a number on it. Give this number to the dealer, he will source the duplicate key from Hyundai.
