How long should the battery in the remote key last? I know, it depends on how much its used right. I've had my fast for about 4 months and mine appears to be dead already! Anyway, not wanting to break the thing to get to the battery I wasn't sure how to open it. Here's a nice site someone put up with pics: http://www.riskin.org/vwkey/ ...thought it might help someone else in the future.

Are there different models of keys for the GTi? I saw a lot of people with this cool fllip out key doohickey, but when I test drove a GTi at the dealership they had a normal looking key.
The "normal" looking key is the valet key. It's what they gave me to test drive, too. I got one with my '06 along with 2 remote, "flip out" keys"

Thanks for the link DGM! Saved me a trip to the dreaded "service" department of my local dealership.

Sweet. Thanks for the info.

And by the way, I don't know how long the battery should last in the VW key fab. But I have had many other ones that have lasted well over 3 years.
