    crazy idea - flick key idea

    ok i was recently wondering how about going about changeing my key for a flick style mk5 key (me having the mk4) now i have seen detailed instructions on how changeing your key over swapping bits and swapping the blades but i was wondering if if the change could be done the other end , changeing the ingiition barrel/lock barrel with a mk5 one (buy with a key) and then use that


    or am i totaly wrong here maybe the mk5 barrel wont fit what so ever ?

    just thinking of ways to do it, but seams mad just for a decent fob lol

    Doesn't the key work on a different frequency or something like that? I know there is a reason why it can't be done that way around.
