This appears to rely on the fact that you 'decoded the lock and cut one key'.
Which requires you to go through a prolonged process with Audi of proving ownership and other checks (like you turned up in the car)...

Would appear so.

Requires access to the emergency key it would seem...

There is a very active gang operating in Aberdeen. As reported in todays paper, http://www.pressandjournal.co.uk/Article.aspx/3347286 they will try house doors until they find one unlocked and steal the car keys. Police report 1 in 20 houses are not locked. There is another thread re an RS4 which was stolen using the emergency key. The thief was out on probation for a string of previous offences.

Missile, Autosonic fitted a tracker monitor. I also had to fit it for my Insurance. Its one that if the car is moved without the keys then Tracker calls you to inform you before the police. To be honest i wouldn't want my car back if it was stolen. I would prefer it to be burnt out as it has GAP insurance. As long as the insurance paid out i would just get another new car to replace it.
