Solution 1: call a reputable local auto locksmith and get it done
An easy way but may charged you a big ton of money is to go to a local auto locksmith and get it done, never mind the dealers. But the cons is that if you lost the key again……
If you try this on your own.. You will mess up dash or else a big bill this is not a 5 minutes job needs proper tools or pay the price.
Solution 2: Use VCDS
It’s a lot more complicated for this generation of Immo… You’re getting into Component Protection…trying to find missing bytes from modules in the car…you are supposed to be able to solder well. Besides, vag machanics dont even see the codes now as its all online now with vag license.
