    Bare in mind, everybody: this car is EU2 emissions regs. I can't recall the exact differences, but it's possibly only 2 lambdas and a simplified set of codes etc?

    I'm pretty sure ALL 8P A3's were 4C - If not, they certainly started in the 2004 model year, for Europe at least. My original A3 3.2 donor for the R32ran was also 2004 with 4C.

    So many reason to...

    The key thing confuses me... It's Immo 4C - the SKC is of no use to you. You shouldn't be able to match a new key with VCDS (Right? Or is my brain broken / I am too tired?)

    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

    DO NOT try this, unless some one confirms it is for keys... I seem to recall having to "delete" all keys or remotes before I could match mine... is that a KEY thing, or a REMOTE thing???

    Those PTC heaters suffer from dry joints on the board.

    It's worth re-flowing the solder (with real solder - the stuff with lead in it). There are some online guides about them.

    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.

    I admire your commitment and enthusiasm. Unfortunate that it wasn't as straight forward as some swaps are :cry:
