    Flip Key Question

    I've currently got a 2 button flip key but want to purchase a new one. On ebay there are 3 button ones as theres an extra button for boot opening, can I buy the 3 button one and get it programmed at a audi dealership?

    thanks,

    thanks,
    Answer is no mate, later A3/S3's had a solenoid operated boot release to make use of the third button, I would presume you have a manual lever operated mechanism on your car is you have the 2 button remote.

    Why do you need to know the Mhz of the key?

    But if you do, just find somebody with a frequency counter.

    My guess is it's probably somewhere around 27megs.
