|I don't know where you can get it cut, but anyone with a vag-com can program your key for you. If you know someone in your area, or look in the regional section you may be able to get it done cheaper.|
Generally not true. To do that you need the SKC, which you MIGHT have if you are the original owner. If you don't have it, the tech's at the dealership CANNOT retrieve it for you.
If the dealership will program it for at total of $80, you are doing quite well.
As far as cutting the key, MOST good locksmiths can cut them. My wife went to a nearby locksmith, and he put her original next to it and eyeballed it. No jig, trace, or anything else as a guide. Works perfectly on all locks
