My car was stolen about 6 weeks ago and recovered without the keys. The car is a audi a3 2.0TDI Sport 3 door. The car has been at the 'insurance approved garage' for about 4 weeks now and today i got informed they are going to write the car off. They had a company down to replace the keys and they are now telling me they still havent been able to start the car because the ecu is corrupt and theirs nothing they can do. I want to keep the car as their is a few minor scratches and ideally when i get the car back it will get wrapped.
Any advice is greatly appreciated in regards to the key situation. Does this normally happen? or can i just source a ecu off another audi a3 with the keys plus barrels?
Also if anyone knows any companys that specialise in this?
Im based in North London
