A1 key programming - Wellington
« on: May 06, 2014, 03:00:43 pm »
We brought an Audi A1 "twin" for the wife from Continentals in Auckland which was supposed to come with two keys. So after much chasing a second key has just been couriered  to us. We now need to get this programmed to the car,  Armstrongs would like $45:00 for plugging in the diagnostic machine and 30 minutes labour. Without being a nana about the price, anyone know of anywhere else in Wellington which might be more cost effective or do I just roll with it? Cheers

Beveridge locksmiths do it, unsure about price, but you could compare the two.

$45 from the local audi agent is a no brainer.

Yep it appears that way - although it's $45:00 plus another half hour labour on top of that.

If it was meant to come with two keys, get Continentals to pay for it.

It was only when I picked up the car from Continentals  that they said the previous owner was dropping a second key down to the them. That can't have happened and after a couple of months of pushing they must have ordered a spare in. We had to email the top man to finally get this far so I can't see them springing for the programming cost from Armstrongs also. In saying that we can only but ask.
