    Replacement key fob and programming

    I have just bought a v reg a3 Quattro and it only has one key, as I'm pretty good at misplacing my keys I need a spare key, I phoned the Audi main dealers who quoted me just shy of £300!!

    Does anyone know a cheaper way around this, I have looked at keys on eBay but I can't seem to find one with the electrics inside,

    Any help to point me in the correct direction would be helpful please!!

    Thanks, James

    A friend just did this,he bought a fob and blank blade GENUINE Audi three button remote key fob A1, A3, A4, A6, A8, Q7, TT | eBay
    You would need to ask to confirm if its an 8L
    Also a transponder chip 1 AUDI/SEAT/SKODA ID48 VIRGIN TRANSPONDER CHIP *NEW* | eBay
    Then you will need someone to program it to the car,a local locksmith,Timpson the shoe key cutting place were doing it for 120 quid.
    Hope this helps.

    Shame you are not closer, I have VAG tacho, programs keys and clusters a treat!
    I would take a look at NW Keys Ltd - Home very good service and good value.
    Cheers.
