    Did this get sorted? There is a way to get in but not posting it on an open forum.

    If I did the same thing, all I would need to do is get my second key and open the car. If you don't have a second key I think now is the time to get one. A dealer may be able to supply one based on the VIN number. Take you registration document with you to prove you are the owner.

    i thought you needed more than that. don't you need 2 forms of ID and something like a bank statement or recent utility bill to prove where you live? Mercedes even have to send something off to Germany. it's a right faff.

    I don't think so. I think all you have to do is prove that you are the registered owned of the car with that specific VIN number, which having a copy of the registration document should do. Where you live is irrelevant as Audi would not know that anyway.

    Easy to check - phone an Audi dealer!

    I've just phoned my local Audi dealer and they say all they need is a copy of the V5 registration document and a copy of the owner's driving licence for cross reference. They can then order a new key and it takes 5-6 days to arrive. A copy of a utility bill to confirm the owners address can also be useful but not essential.

    dont think so mate youve gotta wait for a green key to come seperately from the key from germany which lets the car code a new remote ;)
