This sounds like a great example of how things keep getting more complicated and expensive.

My car just has a regular key. Like Frank said - $1 a copy at the hardware store.

As for a fancy alarm system, I can think of several cheap and easy ways to foil a thief that cost next to nothing.

That said, any of my friends with VWs love them! Shame about the key cost though!
