I had the original switch blade and two I bought on ebay. New ones with the hard plastic buttons.
I used a cheap ebay usb odbii cable and VCDS (registered version).
I had to download the HEX code out of the cluster and get the code.
That was probably the hardest part.
But it all worked just fine.

The expensive part was getting the keys cut. Local shop charged me $60 each and were total dicks about it. Complaining how hard Chinese keys were and hard to cut. When in reality they only had one bit for their key cutter and the end was cracked from them not knowing how to use it properly.
