    You can have it re-programmed to lock and unlock the doors/boot but it won't start the car. The immobiliser chip is a one-off chip that cannot be re-programmed.

    The only way is to obtain the 'secret code' only known to Audi Germany and then get a new immo. chip programmed with that code. Costs min £150 from dealer.

    Merry Christmas by the way !!!

    Thanks for the reply mate

    Really?? Bit pricey for lock and unlock lol

    So if I needed another key to start aswell , I'd need to get a duplicate key made?
    Any idea how much that is??
