Hi all,

I have a 2018 Tiguan Allspace, pretty sure its the same MBQ platform, only 1 key came with it and the VW quote is crazy!!!!

Flip key: $758.26inc gst, ex-Singapore (2-3 weeks.)
Programming: $172.50inc gst.
Total: $930.76inc gst.

Programming price is reasonable but $758 for the key is not.

I'm in Wellington and have tried Beveridge locksmiths and rocky locks who both thought they could code a new key but their tooling was unable to when they tried. Anyone else with a later model Mk7 been able to get a spare key programmed for a better price?



No - but keen to hear if you find a reasonable solution.


Be wary of third party coding.

I tried to get a spare key coded for my Megane RS through a local locksmith and they fubared the ECU programming.

There are companies that can "clone" your key, one outfit in Penrose that does it for Euro cars but have not had it done personally.
