This has been asked many, many, many times.
There's no way round it.
Just bite the bullet and buy it from the dealer but you should only be paying £200-240.
And don't faff about thinking you can be clever about it, get it bought AS SOON AS POSSIBLE - WITHOUT DELAY - as I can assure you that whilst you only have the one key you're almost certainly going to be at the mercy of Sod's Law and lose or mislay the one key you have or, as I did, manage to lock the key in the car with engine running and the lights on in the middle of nowhere and me standing outside in the pissing rain on a cold winter's night with no coat or hat and looking at my mobile phone sitting on the dashboard . . .
