    Flip key

    I seen someone selling these on ebay, its states in the listing its not possible to put a non flip key in a flip remote!! But as it comes with the remote case and a blank key could i not just get the blank key cut the same as my mk4 one and put my electrical bits inside the remote?

    Blank keys start from a basic shape and the detail to match the lock is cut into the blank. So if your key atm already matches the shape of those in the advert (which my mk4 key definatly doesnt) then you could just get it cut as you suggest. I would think that all mk4 keys are the same however (if someone knows better please let me know) so unless you want to change the ignition barrel and door locks for those from a car with flip keys as I believe some people on here have done, then you are a bit stuck

    its really not that simple, i even got a chevrolet key that has the same shape blade in as the mk4 but i got stressed and ended up ruining one of my remote keys.

    Dont get me wrong it is possible, but just not as simple as what you think
