    key programing

    hi guys,
    i lost my key for my s3 some time ago now and thought its about time i got a spare, after some research i thought i would take a trip to my local breakers pick up a fob get a new blade cut and get it reprogramed to match the car. However my local breakers said i could have one for 10 but its no good and it cant be done,after a bit more research i am lead to belive the chip is a once only programmable chip,am i better off just goin to the main stealers for new key???
    any help appreciated
    thanks

    My S3 came with only one key, I did the same as S3Mad suggested I bought the blank flip out key from ebay for 12, but the alarm section i couldnt get so i got it from an Audi stealer, cost me 50, then 12 to get it coded, If you do go to a stealer you'll need you V5 doc as well.
