ANY keycutters have the ability to cut a HAA blade....however some may refuse to do so in case it does not match 100% and they do not have a replacement.

The guy that did mine told me that if it was cut wrong I could not take it back blah blah and was reluctant to do it, so he did, then it needed some more taking off for it to fit comfortably in the ignition barrel.

I got a new blade cut and delivered from a digital pic, here. Send him a good quality pic, pay £7.50, and £1.25 or so postage, and it arrived next day. Worked first time as well.

And it was a genuine VW key blade. [H]

Similar to my experience then, the first cut made the blade too thick to insert fully into the barrel, got it re-cut for free.

This was my local key cutters/shoe repairers.

HAA stamped on them and a W
First link says "The lower blade in the
picture is cut on my machine, the upper the original factory blade,
enlarge picture and see the difference" and shows this picture...



Second link simply shows a picture of four different types of key blade, and says "Make Model and year of your vechile as blade's change as in photo."

Doesn't say anything about supplying genuine keys?
