Default How much does an Audi replacement key cost?

Hi, Does anyone know how much it costs to get a replacement key?

I know sales people will try to inflate prices when they are selling you the key replacement warranty, but how much do the keys really cost?

They have to be coded with all others and the car via the mothership in AG. The dealership has to actually book time to connect and recode the whole set so no you are not getting out of it cheap!

The minimum price would be the cost to buy it online at an internet wholesaler plus ship and then a half hour labor plus the computer fee to get the code and tax. More likely is 1 hour labor.

So as a rough estimate, under $100 for parts plus $130 labor.

How do you lose a car key anyways unless someone steals it?

I haven't lost one. But I am wondering whether the key replacement warranty is worth it because if it's extremely expensive to replace a key, it may be worth it.

I havent replace an Audi key, but my old Lexus key cost $350 to replace, so expect something in that price range if you buy it from the dealer.

I think something to really factor in is if you've ever lost a car key before. If you haven't, there's little reason to think you would, and spending money on a key warranty may not be worth it, whereas if you've lost a few in the past I'd say go for it. It's not an Audi as reference, however its still within the same parent company, but it cost over $200 to replace a key to a Jetta when I had one, and this was over five years ago, and for a much simpler key. My Audi sales guy said it runs just shy of $400 to replace one for the A4 and the Q5 I have.

yes, $350 and the dealer did everything. So this guy cut and program the key for $80?

I recently lost the small wallet-key after surfing (its a great little key to keep in your suit/trunks during surfing and no electronics get messed up, and to just open the doors)
Ordered a new one (actually 2 pcs) from my dealer, and I think I remember them being pretty pricey, like 'oh-yeah-I-have-an-Audi pricey'.... could be 80 or 120 bucks each

Ha-ha-ha
great, order more pieces priced at $ 300
Of course, the only question is what you can with the same.
That this is true then the Audi cars stolen every day.

For you information Audi car from 2009 was not stolen because of the system of protection in five points and everything is connected with smart key.
It's impossible to program a smart key except the factory Audi Germany
Let us know when you buy a "Chinese original smart key"

Price in Europe is 119 Euros + inner rail section 32 Euros and 35 Euros for programming

don't want to sidetrack the thread, but you said it was impossible to find smartkeys online for audi, in general. i found a smartkey online for audi. the model and price aren't relevant. all it took was a simple google search.

Spijun,
thanks for the screenshot. I'm looking for part#4 & 6 from your diagram for a US 2009 Q5. I wanted to know if it's possible to buy a used one online and have the dealer program it to my car.

I've found a item on ebay for the both parts but my question is, if I take this remote the dealer will part#4 (fob) be able to be programmed to my car?

I understand that part#6 (key blade)has to be ordered and cut by audi.

In the US the part numbers are:
8T0 959 754G TKE (fob)
8t0 837 216A ind (Key blade)

Also, I've called 2 separate dealers in my area and both told me that the bottom part (fob) is ordered from Audi by your VIN# and coded specifically to your car.

The dealer quoted me $186/us + labor/tax (~$280total) to order and program the new key from them. The used key online is $40 but I would have to order the new key blade.

Do not waste your money.
How will program a used key????
As far as I know it will not do any Audi dealer (at least in Europe)
Part numbers 8T0 959 754G, 8T0 837 216A not only for America and the Audi Q5 but everywhere in the world, and for all models of the same platform (A4, A5, Q5)

Ok, so basically what you're saying is that I have to suck it up and spend close to $300 to get a new key/fob and get it programmed.... right?
