    Someone will be around soon to answer, but whilst a key thread is open, may I just hijack it for a cheeky question?

    Are the 1998 AGU's keys coded? It doesn't have remote locking but does have central. Thinking of getting another key cut for it as only have the one, and wondering if I need any gubbin's inside?

    OP, sorry to hijack! :beerchug:

    Someone posted this up for me when i was having trouble with my keyfob, unfortuantly i had no spare and the key wouldnt work in my drivers door so was no good for me.

    Taken straight from Autodata. Vehicle entered was 2000 S3, not sure if it makes a difference though.

    Edit: Just realised, this is no use if your key won't manually unlock the drivers door.

    spatula, almost certain the key will be coded to the car. you will need to get it coded to the car otherwise you can unlock it but not start the car. good luck
