    Problem is the keyfob has the chip inside so you need to get round that aswell cause it wont start until the chip is near the barrel to then activate the ecu to start the car, I'm not sure if vag allows the immo to be disabled, might be a question for the Vag forum, post on there & see if ross-tech replies, explain fully what you wanna do as they might think your a car tealeaf otherwise, lol.

    Just kidding about with ya Nilz.
    Look Tuna Features....an alarm can be very interesting, depending on how you perceive it., now if we look at alarm clocks, you could have a 2in1, eg the standard Audi alarm as your wake up call in the morning....oh forget it, im chatting doodoo!!! LOL!!!

    The usual method assuming that the Alarm is secure is to permanently mount the immobiliser chip out of one of your keys next to the reading coil (ignition switch).

    You could also try Revo, at one point they were offering ECU code that bypassed the immobiliser code for Engine transplants etc. Though you would have to prove that it was your motor etc.

    Either method bypasses the Audi security, so check with your insurance company, also ensure that the new Alarm is more secure than the Audi security.
