    I think to do this with Vag-Com you will need you secret key code that came with the keys when the car was new(4 digit or 7 digit). Without that it cant be coded. The Audi dealer wont have the code but will be able to get it if they recode your car.

    sorry, this may seem obvious, but which set of instructions do i use? there is either "Procedure for matching keys to vehicles with Immobilizer in the Instrument Cluster:" or "Procedure for adding keys to vehicles with separate Immobilizer:"

    thanks again mate

    Can someone please clarify. I have a 2.5TDi A6 2003 (UK model). I have the original 7 digit SKC ( comprised of one letter and 6 numbers) on the plastic whatsit from when the car was originally delivered (not to me though). Do I need any more information to code a new key and remote to the car using Vag-Com? Many thanks

    I have SKC/PIN, but not the date on which the SKC/PIN was generated by the dealer or the Workshop Code. (WSC) or the Importer number of the dealer that generated the code. How do I go about getting these?

    Got a 4 or 7 digit SKC/PIN? Got any invoice from that dealer where you can find a number that looks like 5 or 8-digits in the header?
