    Whats the first point of call to get a replacement lads?

    my insurance said they'll give me Ł100 good will gesture when i buy the replacement which is cool.

    Ive phone everywhere i went yesterday but nobody has found anything.

    Do i just go and bend over for Audi then? or can you get em done somewhere else?

    cheers

    she just phoned and said she wants Ł240 for a remote key, cut and blah blah. or Ł180 for x2 regular keys all coded etc with no remote.

    seems expensive or is it?

    this is immaterial but if you had the key you could have the blade off ebay and get it cut and the remote would need the transponder coded to your car which was 50 quid off Audi iirc

    Hi, just a thought. did you drive/driven to all those places? have you looked down the back of the car seat or where ever youve been sat, they may have dropped out of your pocket.

    yes mate been everywhere looked crazily in my gf's car aswell. we even looked at flats yesterday and went back to the same ones to see today.

    my brother in law is a manager of a timpsons store so he could have cut it for me for free but as u kno all is good in hindsight.

    @flight666 thats not too bad and would be much more affordable

    ill phone around tomorrow (audi aswell)

    cheers all ill be back

    ok audi want Ł325 and the key will have to be ordered from germany (WTF? )

    best alternative ive found is Ł220 who will come to my door change the locks and give me a remote key and standard key as a spare.

    Seems resonable. Not much in it with the other auto locksmiths ive phoned but this was the closest and the cheapest.

    How does that price sound?

    Knowing how much work is involved changing the drivers door lock, I'd say that is VERY good indeed.

    that blows! i only have one key also so i paid the extra Ł15 on my insurance for key cover with no excess and will cut up to Ł1500 worth of keys or something.

    Ł220 sounds very reasonable to me. make sure they program it for the central locking, immobiliser and alarm too.

    cheers lads!

    will check to be sure they sort it for all those things then. central lock is obvious but how would i check the immobiliser? alarm i guess just flap my arm in the window.

    my insurance only covers Ł100 which is annoying

    check the immobiliser?
    if the car starts!!

    Ł100 is better than a kick in the teeth buddy.


    so as a tag on. as i have one key only, what is the cheapest way of getting another? ebay s/hand key, ebay new blade and someone to program it all and cut it i guess?

    Why don't you find out how much audi/locksmiths will charge you if you supply the key?



    Then you could just buy a cheap one off ebay

    Don't suppose you have a picture of the key face? I know it sounds strange but you can get a new identical key cut from just a picture.

    With regards to replacement keys. I organised a discount with a company, there is a thread about this. Basically Ł80-Ł90 for a new, genuine key cut with fob and chip. If anyone is interested PM me or have a quick search you'll find the details.

    yeh as above just get it on ebay and get it cut at a timpsons or something then get it programmed (which is piss easy, u put the key in the ignition turn it but not the engine on then put the working key in the drivers door and press the lock button then press it twice more).

    problem is when u dont have one at all.

    What key did you have originally? Flip key?

    Ł220 quid for a new key is mugging you off good. The key inc vat is around Ł130 and then programming isnt going to be Ł90. We charge Ł59.99 inc vat at VW.

    i didnt have one originally i lost my only key mate. yeh granted a new key on its own as a spare was Ł130 but as i didnt have a key to copy it was as above mate. Now i have a standard key and a flip key for that price.

    You dont need a key to copy it from though. I have loads of people come in that have lost all their keys. Still costs the same as a normal replacement key apart from they need to get the car recovered here thats all. Was it Wayside that qouted you that price?

    Vindis VW in Bedford.

    You spoke to a twat trust me lol. They were pulling your leg hard! Wayside are known for doing anything to make asmuch money as possible out of you. Even our workshop controller that worked at Wayside for 10 years said that lol

    A replacement is a new key. If you were to get a solid key with no buttons on it then its like Ł70quid plus programming. For a flip key its about Ł130 plus programming regardless of whether its just for a spare or if you`ve lost all your keys. Makes no difference.

    Are you talking the remote for the central locking because that's fairly simple I think. If your talking about the immobiliser chip then my understanding is it can't be done. I could easily be wrong but my understanding is that even the main dealer has to connect the car to the central HQ database to get the code for this. My car only came with 1 key so I looked at my options of buying an old key off eBay as a spare but in the end went got audi to supply and code because all the info I found said it couldn't be done.....please no one tell me that it can as I spent a fortune getting a spare key from audi!

    i can not be arsed to read everything lol

    if you have not fixed it, buy the metal key part ONLY from audi (you need to do this as only they know the pattern for the metal) - then buy a keyfob off ebay and get someone to program it into your car i know someone who can do this, he's based around east london..... the same guy who mapped my car

    You have to first see your convinence. In which way you are happy, whether with insurance company and wait, or calling a auto locksmith and and stop worrying. Its your choice.

    I have annual key protection via my insurance company. Covers you if you lose the key. even goes as far as arranging alternative transport if you are stuck! Think I paid about ÂŁ15 for it.

    Definitely worth having if you only have one key.
