It is not just keys.
My ford indicator stalk cost 6 or 700 to replace.
A plastic tray clip the size of a 50c piece costs around $450 to replace.
Seatbelt was around $400 to replace.
And so on. . .
Wow. Almost cheaper to buy a new second hand car. Guessing it is why some people buy cars and strip them to sell the parts. Hopefully this decision will change the pricing of parts.
While do agree its a rort, there is also the issue of manufacturing a part that will gather dust for years. After incurring manufacturing cost which will be small runs, transport to a wholesaler/reseller and sitting in a shelf that they paid for, for a good that they paid for, for years
