    If I wanted to swap the immobiliser from one car to another - what bits would need to be swapped? just the ignition cylinder or the ECU or what?

    new car only has one key - old car has two and I am wondering which bits I need to swap (and if it is worth it) from one to the other

    Dont swap anything, just fit a new blade to one of the old keys and program that key into the existing immo setup.

    Places on ebay will make you a blade from a photo of the existing key. Programming can be done with Vagtacho.
