Interesting! So it's not just in the UK where parts are expensive and difficult to get hold of. My next car will most definitely not be a Daewoo or Chevrolet. The Matiz is just too expensive to maintain once it comes out of warranty.

What vehicle ignition switch did you use? This has gone on my car and there is still no part available without buying an entire lock set - which I really don't want to do.
