mini wheels

Re: remote key question

Think it's going fairly smoothly so far - I've only shelled out £15 for a blank key off ebay - I'm having it laser cut at the weekend, i've transferred the immobiliser chip into the new housing, so just need to trip down the board slightly, link the battery contacts to the recess in the flip key hou...

Re: remote key question

thanks for the info - feel a bit clueless about this!!

So I may be better continuing to follow the how-to guides and trimming my existing board to fit?

remote key question

Hi Guys, Have been looking at the how to flip key guides, and ordered myself an empty key from ebay which I received the other day... However I noticed on the side of my existing key it says 433mhz as the frequency, and on the casing of the new flip key it also says 433mhz - this would imply you can...

Re: garage used different oil

Re: garage used different oil

Hi Alex,

Thanks for the reply - have spoken with the garage and they say they have a database system that tells them exactly what they can use... They are double checking this for me... in the meantime I spoke to VW and they say it's fine to put 5w40 in the engine - i'm confused now!!

garage used different oil

hi guys,

local garage did an oil change last week for me, they refilled with 5w40 instead of the usual 10w40 - - does this matter?
