    Spare Key

    Tried to get a spare key yesterday for the new car, and Audi said... Wait for it...

    Are you sitting comfortably...?

    Ł160 + VAT !

    WTF !?







    Anyone get one from elsewhere at a more 'reasonable' cost??

    I've bought 2 x black blades off the Bay for Ł5.
    I'm gonna get them cut shortly, maybe a Ł10?
    Got a spare fob (VW), and apparently Audi charge various amounts to re-code. I know someone who recently was charged Ł35 to re-code...

    So could be as little as cŁ50, or maybe Ł115ish...

    Stil a rip off.
