    you also need to buy the key from audi . dont make the mistake and buy a second hand ebay key it will not work !
    audi will program it . expect around the £200 mark.

    Hi folks

    I'm in a similar situation, I just bought a 3.0 tdi b8, I only got one key with it, is there definitely no way around this? Surely with all the trickery that can be done with vcds etc (excuse my ignorance in this respect as I don't know much about what can be done or with which software) don't fancy paying €350 to Audi if I can avoid!


    Many thanks for the help

    VCDS alone will never make a key. It is also limited to programming only keys precoded or previously programmed to your car.

    I have sent a pm requesting the info I need to price you a replacement key.

    I have one proper key and a plastic emergency one. I guess I should have two proper keys and one plastic one?
