Going from the old style key fob to the new style B7 fob is a nice relatively cheap and easy upgrade.

You need a B7 remote with matching frequency to your existing. Used OEM B7 keys go for as low as 23 bucks on ebay. New Chinese knock offs go for 20 bucks on ebay.

You need a key with an FCC ID : MYT 4073A 315mhz 8E0 837 220

Immo Chips can be had here:
ID48 chip required

The main difference is the ebay ones require reprogramming every time you disconnect the car battery or replace the fob batteries. OEM stay programmed throughout, but needs one thing.

The used OEM will need a new blank key blade. Where the knock offs come with a blank already.

Both will need the blades to be cut. From the stories I've read online(I'm paraphrasing here), IF the dealership is willing to touch your blade, they send it off to a desert in Europe, apparently to a skilled basket weaver that lives in a house for fun, who then ships it to an unknown PO box in Belarus to be inspected by a troll, who rolls a deltoidal icositetrahedron, that determines if the fathers will grant permission of such witch craft to take place. If so, he'll wrap the forged metal in a black magic carpet back to Germany, which actually acts as a time machine to when the merger of the four companies originally took place in 1910 to form Audi. to then be cut by some young engineering student for 190 bucks, which is cheap given the process it goes through.

Or you can goto your local lock smith, call first, and they can do it for 15 bucks.

Here it is, yet another silver B6. But here is why. Let me back it up a bit. Shortly after acquiring my co-workers silver, automatic, front wheel drive(CVT) B6, for winter… I was quickly criticized from everything with an asshole, condemned from the inner circles I’ve worked on for the last 33 years of my life, disbanded from my family, egged and ridiculed anywhere I drove. But that’s not what pushed me over the line. One day it snowed, I took the CVT out and it was the lamest thing I drove since old man winter. I jumped into angs 3.0 and thought, how the fuck am stuck with the CVT. After many failed attempts to try and switch the cars without ang knowing, it became apparent that I was stuck with the CVT for the winter… well unless I found something else.

Enter the relentless Kijijijiji searching. No different from any other day really. This unit came up for 2k. It was manged a bit, but it was 6spd and had some work recently done to it. 6spd is quite desirable, and usually commands a premium, but I’m sure people saw the quarter panel and kept looking. I asked a question one week, and got no response. I then sent a message, ”take 1k?” after about a week later he said come take it. I had the Huff do a 402 point inspection on it, as I was out of town, and once he deemed the roof rails to be acceptable, he locked it in for me with a deposit. Drove it home on the weekend from Qc without any issues and started tearing into it.

Hopefully I can bring this unit up to par quick enough for the winter season, but if not, it'll still be a solid car to beat around in the summer. Not sure what the plans are for the CVT, maybe sell it, or keep it in the family as a B car. nothings really wrong with it other than a leaky transmission seal. But who doesnt have that?
