yes they do, its inside the key. get Seat to write a letter/email to the insurance company to confirm it and then you will get insured.

They done that to me aswell, but I think theyre after an aftermarker one aswell ! I had to write/forge a letter on headed paper about the details of the immobiliser and send it away.

I never bothered... Just told them I'd send them the certs in the post, they wrote to me every few months to tell me I wasn't covered for theft.

The OE immo isn't Thatcham approved, but is adequate.

No point in spending £200 on an immo on a £1000 car, with a couple of hundred quid excess is there....

One takes an extra 30 seconds to get the car started.

What the insurance company can't get into their heads is that if thieves want it they will have it. Either by releaving you of your keys and the glass in your back door or by using a tow truck!
