Default Need ignition key for 96 XJ-6

SWMBO took the cat out to the mall. Lost the ignition key. I have the valet and a spare with fob but would like another ignition key for the next time she does it. Sources?

I got a duplicate for my X300 from the nearest Jag dealer for about $65.00...but that was several years ago. I just faxed them the VIN, proof of ownership, and a credit card number and the key was in my mailbox 2 days later

Others will chime in

I've recently checked with my local dealer about duplicate keys for my '92 XJ6 and '96 XJ12. Both are the same key. US Spec X300's do not have an immobilizer, so they use the same tibbe key that the XJ40's use.

The dealer wanted something like $90 for each key (parts) and free cutting.

You can get ILCO style generic keys online and eBay, and just have your locksmith cut them. Tibbe keys are easy to read. There are 3 positions for each landing on the key.

Here's a link about reading the key codes.

Some online key sellers will cut them for you for a small fee. Much less than $90 per key.
