    Where to get a spare key?

    Basically looking for a new key fob and blade for my car so I can have a spare just incase! Where could I get a spare with the chip inside ready to be programmed to my car?

    As far as im aware you can buy something like this; 3 Button Remote Key Fob Case Shell & Blade HAA For Audi A2 A3 A4 A6 A8 TT New | eBay

    Once you have that you can go to Audi and get blade cut and then programmed in.

    Thats as far as im aware m8, i may be wrong.

    My car only came with one key, so I had to go to Audi to get an extra.

    Couldn't find anyone else locally who would touch it. One reputable local car locksmith said he won't touch newer VAG cars as there there is risk of failure when he codes them.

    Where to get a spare key?

    I guess I'm probably best to go via audi themselves just for safety and peace of mind, 225 seems a but steep, could VW do them too?

    There was a tread on here a few moths ago where a chap used a local Glasgow company to supply a new key. Think it worked out like £165 all in. Do a search on audi-sport.

    I wasn't suggesting you try those places, just thought it may give you a few 'what to search for' clues/leads to follow in your local area.

    If you find some VAG specialists in your area you could always give them a ring and ask !

    I know of a place in Leeds (non-Audi) that does them for about £130 ish but you need to bring the car to them.
