00 1.6 Key fob?? - lplollypops

I've just bought a second hand car which unfortunately only came with one basic key (no remote) just the old fashioned blade!!!

My question is...

If I buy a remote fob from ebay and use the re-programming advise that can be found on the internet and programme the fob to my car will it work to lock/unlock my car?

Now I know that i'll need to retain the the original for the ignition.

Am i way off the mark with this?

According to the info I have, replacement keys need to be programmed using diagnostic equipment. The syncronisation process can only be used for existing keys that have been previously programmed to the vehicle.
