It can be done, I don't want to take the traffic away from this site, but here's a link to a write up http://www.passatworld.com/forums/showthread.php?t=94696

Many thanks for taking the time to reply - thats a very interesting article that you sent. I have managed at last to get my banjo style key working again on the car using VAG-Com. Took me about 10 mins and this was despite being told by an independant VW "specialist" that only main dealers have the ability to reprogram immobilisers and match radio keys to the cars security system.

Again thanks for taking the time to reply - I began to think I had incorrectly posted my initial messages.
