Just want to let you know that the price of the key does not include programming. I had a valet key made for each of the two TDI (2000 and 2002) that I bought last month. Cost $45 each. When I picked them up, I was shocked when I was told that they had to be reprogrammed at $142 each. I bought one of the TDIs from the dealership so I was able to haggle them down to $57. I'm not willing to pay 145$ for the other key unless I have to. There's got to be a way to immobilize the immobilizer.Just trying to bypass the imobilizer to get my vw running. Lost the key, ordered a new one from dealer (90) miles away. Does not run for more than a second and alarm sounds.
