    I just clicked it was you :-)

    For EITHER my Remotes or Keys, I had to delete them all first, which I think was an adaptation. I Just don't recall what it was for... someone will know though :-D

    I think the early and late cars were different: One using 2 motors, the other using 1 motor. The Golf has a similar change, I just can't recall the dates or which way around it was.
