    Key Fob Touareg

    I believe dealer only, for our wagon we had to wait for a replacement that dealer ordered came from germany, its vehicle VIN specific and then is programmed once received by the dealer. It was a warranty issue so didn't pay for it but was told it can be between $200 and $300.

    Had Phase 1 done today, 6/19/17

    Good to know, thanks for sharing. I'm taking my wife's sportwagen with 6 speed manual for the first fix on June 28th. The results might be different as the ECU programming on manual vs dsg and passat vs Golf is different, I'm told. Is this correct or they're all the same??
