    Plastic Key?

    Hi,

    I have just bought (from an Audi Dealer) an A3 Sportback - very pleased with it so far

    I was looking through my manual though and it says I should have, as well as the two keys, a plastic strip with a code which is necessary in case the keys are lost.

    I'm sure the dealer did not give me this - should it be something I should have received - if so I'll get onto them about it. If they don't have it, is this going to be a problem if I do lose my keys?

    Thanks for your help

    You dont need the strip at all for a new key, its all done by chassis number & all your key info is held in germany anyway so dont even worry about it, its not neccessary mate.

    Yups, I was a bit confused as why I didn't get a plastic key either. Nothing to worry about as I needed a spare key and the dealer had all the information.
