My VW Polo came with one remote key and one manual key. I accidentally lost my key and had to manage with a manual key for 2-3 years. It was difficult but I didn't wanted to made a basic remote duplicate key from a local shop because of security issues.
So, I ordered an original remote key at Lally Motors, VW Ludhiana. Key arrived from Pune after 15 days and it cost me around Rs 10800
I didn't expected it to be cheaply priced because key's quality is too good, good weight and button's plastic quality.
Other than that, I discussed about Tyres replacement in last 7 years and other minor maintenance expenses for my VW Polo.
