    Ok humble face on! I stand corrected I apologise! All I can say in my defence is I phoned round a lot when I lost my keys and no one could sort it other than Audi same story everywhere.. So maybe mine is different I don't know.. But good shizzle for getting it done and no week wait times 😃

    i feel ur pain, I just lost my Audi key and bought all the equipment to reprogram a new audi key (what an expensive waste of my time)...here is my fix-i bought an unprogrammed key from dealership with vin nmbr)... removed windshield wipers and pulled out the ecu ( ask utube), went to ebay and plugged in the number on the top of removed ecu, got one from audiparts4you (he called and set me up) and got it three days later, plugged it in and car, it started right up, test drove it and accidentally ripped the tires Thu an intersection in second gear ( i elected to buy more powerfull one for my tt-)....lmao...
    total cost :
    $70 for unprogrammed key from dealership
    $250 for the modded ecu ($100 core refunded back)
    --------------
    my total cost: $220 dollars and my cars runs better, alot better...

    alot better than the $700 and all the plus selling of other broke item on my car from dealer, haha my money stayed in the usa...
