2001 Other Kia Models 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 77000 miles

Hi. I have a Kia Shuma (2001) and recently lost the only key for it. I have been told by Kia that the key code was not recorded when it was first registered and so am looking at other options available. One that has been suggested is replacing the ignition barrel and drivers door lock, would this be viable? Also I am told that this would require something happening to the immobiliser, would it be feasible to disconnect it or is it possible to get it recoded or a key coded to match it? The car only cost me £ 400 and so I dont really want to spend a lot of money on it so really want the cheapest way of sorting out. Thanks!
