    Can anyone confirm for me exactly which type of key fob is used with the Comfort Key system on the A3 8V?
    Is it the flick key or the larger push-in dash style key that other models use?
    i have ordered it as part of my custom configure and really keen to find out, so, if you have an A3 8V with Comfort pack, could you please share a photo of the key type.

    thanking you muchly

    I think it's identical looking to the standard flip key, though this isn't part of the comfort pack so doesn't look to me like you've specced it? Unless it's a different package in Australia

    The Australian Comfort package looks slightly different to the UK spec:

    http://www.audi.com.au/etc/medialib/ngw/au/a3_spec_guides.Par.0009.File.pdf

    "Electric seats for driver and front passenger including electric lumbar support, seat heating for driver and front
    passenger, convenience key, auto-dimming interior mirror, exterior mirrors electrically adjustable, plus folding
    with kerb-view function"

    The convenience key I think is the equivalent of the 'Advanced Key' system in the UK. In which case you still get a key, and it looks exactly like the standard key (and the same as the previous 8P model). You just don't need to press any buttons or put it in the ignition to start the car.

    Thanks MJ - great info.
    Does anyone have a DeLorean that gets up to 88mph? Sick of waiting already.
