    I hope you are aware that the immobiliser is in the instrument panel and you will need to get a new key/keys to start the vehicle. You will need to go to an Audi dealer for that.

    Also the mileage will be different and you will need to either increase the mileage to the same as your car has done and/or inform VOSA for MOT purposes.

    I believe the immobiliser chip in the key fob is a 'one-shot' chip and cannot be re-programmed. The lock/unlock can be paired up ok but surely you cannot pair the new immobiliser chip in the new instrument panel with the old keys ?

    I am speaking about 2005 MY cars and later with the latest shape key fob.

    mike, your correct that the chip in the key can't be changed. What they do is match the replacement cluster to ecu & keys as opposed to matching those to the cluster.
