    Help with lost keys !!!

    Hi guys , lost my key drunk last night and don't have a spare !!! Luckily the car was unlocked in the garage so I can get in it not that that helps lol
    if I get a key off eBay with a transponder in it can I code it to the car myself or am I gonna get ripped off by Audi for my stupidity ?

    I think you will need to take a trip to the stealers as i know you can code a key to open the doors etc using the car in the ignition etc but i am pretty sure you need to get Audi to code it for the immobiliser.

    You maybe able to purchase the key off Ebay to save some money b ut the coding will have to done at Audi.

    As a guide on my first S3 i had about 5 years ago it only came with one key so i got a spare from audi (before i had heard of ASN) it cost about £150 for the key and the coding if i remember correctly

    Glad i haggled the guy i was buying the car off down as he said it had 2 keys in the advert and only 1 when i bought the car so i did get an extra £100 knocked off the price when collecting the car so that made the sting from the stealers slightly less painful.

    I had a mobile guy come out and cut me a new key and code it for my car. He also blocked any previous keys from working. £200 for key code and cut. Also gave me some 4 digit code

    Haha brilliant. My car key is always given to the mrs when I'm out on the booze. Just incase I get an urge to drive after. I tend to do stupid things when I'm completely wasted.

    Same as most ppl though. Some ppl fight, some crave food, I get an itch to drive unfortunately. Never done it mind.
