Not quite in the same price range but.. When I had a Rover, I took it
in for a particular service, part of which as it turned out was to
replace the battery in the remote control - for about £10 IIRC! The
annoying thing was, I'd held onto the keys that I use every day and
had given them my spare which had barely been used.. I stomped my feet
and got my money back though!
