  1. Hi Does anyone know other than the OEM expensive cutters where I can source some 1.5mm cutters to use with jaw F on my Bianchi 994 machine? I've been using Tilgear for my 2.5mm cutters but their 1.5mm cutter are about 5mm shorter so aren't long enough to lockin place. Thanks Craig
  2. Hi Can anyone give me the give code from the attached photo please? Thanks
  3. Hi does anyone use keydiy? i've been using the B07 type for quite a while now & the ones i've been getting the logo recess has been flat inside so the normal 14mm concave VW etc logos don't fit. So i've been using gel coated logos which are much better anyway. I've just received another batch of 75x B07 remotes but the logo recess is now 14mm & domed, which means my flat gel logos don't fit. I've spoken to UAP, Advanced Keys & NW keys but they don't have any of the type i need & i didn't see the B07 remotes on 3D's website. So does anyone know of anywhere else i may be able to get the B07 that have a flat logo recess. Or if anyone themselves has them & would swap for the ones i have that use 14mm concave logo? Cheers Craig
  4. Hi has anyone got or used a HU66 Turbo Decoder? Been having a nosy at it on the internet & looks a good bit of kit, albeit with quite a high price tag. Just wondering what peoples opinion on it are? The websites i've seeb it on only seem to accept Western Union or Bank Transfer! Thanks Craig
  5. Hi i've been using Abrites AVDI for the majority of my VAG keys which is 99% just spare keys. Rarely seem to do lost key jobs. Anyway i've had a few phone up lately with NEC & Micronas clusters such as mk6 Golf & facelift 8p A3. I've had to turn them away as i haven't got any eeprom tools to read the clusters when there's no working key. I've emailed a couple of companies but they just seem to be trying to push me to buy all sorts of other kit. Some haven't even replied & i emailed them several days ago. Basically i've looked at Xprog-m, Tango, Orange 5 & Codex. Can anyone give me any advice on which would be the best all round tool to use with my AVDI for doing lost keys on NEC & Micronas clusters? thanks Craig
  6. He got it sorted. Ended up using Herne Bay locks. I gave him a few numbers to pick from around that area that i found on Google Thanks for the replies
  7. Hi is there anyone in Kent able to supply & code a transponder to a 2004 8P A3? Guy has lost 1 of his keys but the remote he has left(KD200 type) doesn't have a transponder in it. The kd200 key is coded to the doors & blade is cut. He's in Whitstable, Kent Cheers Craig
  8. Hi Does anyone know of any equipment that will program the remote part of these keys with barcode? Tried a few times with my MVP & remotes bought from 3d but just doesn't work & still takes a token Craig
  9. No. I was always led to believe they had to be coded using the barcode
  10. which system do they need to be coded through Dan as i'm sure i've tried all the different option in the MVP menu & just watched my tokens vanish. Also i don't have any issues with the EWS which is why i just asked about the remote part in my original post
  11. My MVP Pro doesn't do it which i believe is same software as AD100 Pro. After you've entered the remote position & barcode then the instructions for turning ignition off, on & off then pressing remote buttons comes up on the screen but vanishes within a second. I've spoken to Hickleys several times about it & they say it won't program copy remotes. Will only program genuine remotes from dealers
  12. Ah yeh never thought of that. Cheers guys!
  13. Hi been to do a lost key job on a 2003 Ford Ka today. Car was locked, put my tibbe pick & decoder in the drivers door with the locking pin still in place, turned it to unlock & it actually unlocked straight away without even trying to pick & decode the lock which i presumed would making decoding it a problem. So i decided to remove the door lock. I also noticed the door card was loose on the end closest the lock & when the card was removed the plastic cover that's bonded over the door was cut open near the lock. I expected to find that that door lock had previously been tampered with to make it so it unlocked with any tibbe but it hadn't. It was exactly has it should be. The little locking bar was still in place. So I just took the lock apart to read the tumblers. Anyone else come across this before? Craig
  14. isn't the Exeo based on an A4 though? Uses RB8 clocks etc. A4 uses an 8E0 remote which afaik still isn't covered by KD

    my AVDI V25 is yet to fail on doing spare keys for mk6 Golf & I've done quite a few since getting AVDI Last year. Also done quite a few other VAG from 2009 onwards such at Transporter T5.1, mk5 Ibiza, facelift mk2 Leon, facelift mk2 Octavia & they've all been spot on with spare keys. Usually done them quicker than the customer could bring me a brew out! It's the lost key thing i really need to sort out. I've now got an NEC cluster bench rig & picked up some NEC clocks today. I now just need to decide what i'm going to do about which eeprom equipment to go for. My heads still spinning with the options in that department

    Ok thanks for the replies. Someone has pm'd me & kindly offered for me to pop round & have a look at the equipment he uses. He's got a NEC cluster so can show me through the process

    equipment & liability cover?

    Just a bit of an update! Took my new policy out with Locksure! James was very helpful! Cheers Mark Friend
  18. Hi can anyone recommend a good insurer that will insure the equipment in my van & give me liability cover? I've been looking online as my current insurance is up for renewal but hardly anyone seem to do Auto Locksmith tool cover. Current equipemt cover is with One Insurance Solution. £40k cover for £450 per year thanks Craig

    equipment & liability cover?

    that's what it is. My current insurer cover me for all that but i have to take laptops, MVP Pro etc inside the house on a night, which isn't really a problem. They did say that if i'm staying in a hotel somewhere while working away I would be covered if everything is locked in the van. All the doors have extra security locks, alarmed & also have a tool safe in the van

    equipment & liability cover?

    ok thanks for that. Just tried calling them but no answer. Guessing they're closed as it's Saturday
  21. thanks for that! Just been back on & managed to place order
  22. Hi has anyone else had issues ordering certain products online from UAP? Over the last 2 months i've been trying to order the KD B07 remotes & HU66 blades online but everytime i try it says they're currently out of stock. So i've phoned UAP & they tell me they have them in stock. Took me ages to convince them to give me the black Friday discount over the phone as they said it was an online only offer. Item said out of stock online so how was i expected to order some? Anyways i've just tried to order some more & it still says they're out of stock. Over the last 2 months i've had to order by phone because of the website saying no stock. Keep telling them but nothing is changing. A few minute phone call isn't a problem but they're closed until the 5th Jan & I want to take advantage of the 20% discount they have & place an order. The 20% only runs until 1st Jan Craig
  23. i believe they're closed until the 5th so sending an email isn't going to help. I've also emailed them several times over the last couple of months regarding orders & never had a reply, i've always ended up having to phone them
  24. right! has anyone else that uses the KD200 managed to program a 4D0837231K remote which hasn't had issues afterwards? I've done a fair few & every single 1 has an issue afterwards where if the car has been sat for 2 or more hours you have to press the unlock button 4 times. I spoke to Advanced Keys ages ago & they say they know about the issue but don't know of any fix. I've got several people with cars that use Audi K remote that are wanting the chrome KDB03 remote doing but don't want 1 if it has to be pressed 4 times to unlock the car
  25. thanks guys will do it today
