    Oh, good, didn't know they do Audi remotes too:) I had one off ebay and went to timpsons to only cut the blade for about a £10 as far as I remember.

    Most timpsons style shops can only clone keys. Most audis are not clonable so they can't program the immobiliser.

    Yeah, I just wanted them to clone the key as I bought a central locking set off ebay which I didn't have in my B5 and then only moved the immo bit and off I went
