buy a blank key blade, eBay £2.99. get a remote with the same part number and frequency as current one £15-20 ish

Get key blade cut, £20 i paid an mobile auto locksmith then get someone to code it to the car for you locally from this forum. fv1200 done mine for me.

Ask the person coding the key if they can supply the glass immo pill or if you need to get one. around £6 i think.

Should then have a key for well under £100

I paid £40 for a key cut and supplied with a fresh immo pill chip, and a brand new remote body...

Then I coded in the key and the remote :)

£40 all in! If you cant program it yourself I'm sure someone here can!

Got the key fob, blade, electronics and transponder pill for like 12£ on AliExpress, more than a year with it and still perfect, so no fears of Chinese crap. Then you just need a key cutter to do the blank blade, and easy to code it with vcds/vagcom. Good luck!

And yes, the boot button works. You press it, only the boot unlocks, the moment u close it it locks automatically. Same with the alarm button, I press it and starts the alarm, perfect when someone is leaning on the car ;) and btw, here is the link for the whole set (key, fob, electronics and pill) Replacement Remote key Keyless Entry Fob 3 Button 433.92MHZ 4D0 837 231 K 4D0837231K For AUDI A6 TT Old Models WIth ID48 Chip
