I'll look when I get home, but initial thoughts are that's a GSA key, and the same key blank might be used on the BX.

Right - that's the profile and door key number obtained - I'll let the boys know . . . . 8-[

Looks like a DB SEX6P blank, but no swivel head.

I don't think they do them currently, but a SEX6 would be sans plastic top.

Silca equivalents would be SX6, SX6GP, SX6P

good point - but the boys will have to travel far and the car doors are all unlocked anyway... [emoji12]
