key snapped in the ignition?

I've snapped my key in the ignition I'm wondering what a realistic price to get it fixed by a garage is and also would it be easy enough to do it myself? I'm a novice at cars.

Impossible to answer by email. The first thing to do is buy a pair of needlepoint pliars and try to extract the blade of the broken key. If successful, get another one cut by Timpsons.

Far better than previous Vectra. Now with decent handling and an excellent ride. Plenty of safety kit. Roomy in the front. Big boot. Good looks.
