    Central locking can be fitted without remote functions tbh, you need to do 1 of 2 things, goto audi & get a checklist of what is fitted to your car, parts department can usually get this & should show if has remote or not or 2nd & probably best, get someone with vagcom to scan & check if they can see any key functions in measuring blocks. & try to code keys to car.

    My S3 was late 99, that had full functions, but not sure of the early A3 if they were line specific, but tbh if they flash when locking then I suspect it has the feature.
