    3 Button Transponder off Ebay

    Has anyone bought 1 of these keys off ebay and had it reprogrammed and the blade cut. When i purchased my car it only came with 1 key, I'm scared of me or the wife losing it! So rang up the local stealers and was quoted 150 + vat! I then asked them how much for reprogramming and the blade cutting, and was greeted with 50 for programming and they don't cut keys there. So can any of you lot help? I refuse to pay them 170 for a key ( which could be going towards my RNS-e fund ). Thanks for any assistance.

    Come accross quite a few people elsewhere who've done this and its ok. You can re-programme the key to operate the central locking through vag-com, the key bit obviously needs to be cut at a key cutting place, but you'll need to get the transponder for the immobiliser sorted through Audi or a specialist else you'll be going nowhere with it!! I've got 2 keys on my car but as the previous owners dog ran out of things to chew the key is a bit mangled, have a plan to get one of these transponders myself and change over the key bit & the immobiliser transponder to give myself a nice new key!
