    Yup, should be these 3 keys, the plastic one is suppose to be a wallet key or service/valet key? Probably starts the car, but doesn't open bootlid and glovebox??

    anyone know how much to get a replacement if its lost? Is it cheaper to get your key duplicated whilst u still have the original?

    Your right. I work with a guy who owns a TT and it only came with one key so he bought one off Ebay only to find it couldn't be coded.
    So yes beware of cheaper alternatives which may be a waste of time and money.
