How much should it cost me for a new 2 button flip key for my 1999 A3 from an audi dealer?

Without wishing to sound unhelpful I think your best bet is to call a dealer and ask them?

I may be totally wrong here, but i think i saw a post saying you can carry out the programming yourself. Certain instructions had to be carried out in a pre-determined manner e.g. press a few buttons and moving the windows. Ebay seems to be awash with uncoded keys. try to search the forum for the guide. Of course, i could have imagined it all! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Agreed around £150. When I lost one, the stealer wanted proof of ID, practically ablood sample and then they download the codes from 'Germany' alledgedly

Thats correct. The key information for each vehicle is held on Audis central computer system and a dealer can download this information. You may be able to re-syncronise the radio part of the key but it still needs the correct transponder code to de-activate the electronic immobliliser and also has to be cut to work the steering column lock / ignition switch and actual door locks manually.

We do the same at our Centre and I'd be extremely annoyed if the same process wasn't used elsewhere. The last thing I'd want is Dealers giving out my Key number without relevant proof of ownership and ID /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/sportifs2.gif Its a pain in the arse but has to be done!

We charge £125.00 coded for a new Remote key, but our Labour rates are cheaper this side of the Country /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif
