    Not a t4... but a 2007 beetle!

    So after years of moaning Iíve given in and bought my wife a beetle! She has already ordered her flower and what ever else you put in them!!

    If it keeps me in her good books and itís a vw Iím happy!

    Now quick question, it only came with one key, is there an easy way to code one does anyone know? Main dealer want £260 odd! Iíll ring round some auto locksmiths tomorrow but thought I would ask here first!

    Cheers guys!

    Yes i'm sure there are firms that do it. Think someone was doing it at Busfest last year at good rates.

    If you look on the Ross Tech site & the other forum there's plenty of correct information about programming keys. It's not difficult.

    Yep.

    Bought a couple of blanks from ebay for about a fiver - got them cut to the lock then programmed them - posted the method up on here - search for 'adaptions'

    Then I could get rid of the chip that was taped to my transponder barrel.


    Pics of the beetle?

    I quite like them - especially the RS. They can handle well

    Mmmm having just the key and the car and no other data... looks like a trip to the main dealer or auto locksmith. I think that doing the remote central looks easy, just the immobiliser that looks tricky!

    I'd always advice getting a second key cut and if its chipped get programmed. As its a right pain once your only key is broken, worn or lost. Am lucky with our 2 vans as they don't have a chip in the key. I got 2 genuine vdub blanks from fleabay (7.99posted they also did programmable keys ) and got them cut at the shoe repairers/key cutting stall in the market at Skiddy. Stimpsons or what ever they are called will only cut their own keys.
