Cheers guys, unfortunatley I haven't got the handbook either, so I'll just get a mechanic to do a note!  :smiley:

I agree with kells....No insurance co would ask you to prove it has a non thatcham factory "key" immobiliser

did you tell them it has one fitted on a quote as I guess they want proof it's cat 1 or 2! (mine always do and I have to show the vsib approved fitting cert)

call them and explain it only has the standard factory immobiliser.....I feel there expecting something better!
vw didn't name the immobiliser as it's standard kit! (and fitted to all mk3's since 1994)

Do you know phoenix business park off dodwells road? Pop in and i'll read the immo box and type up a quick note for your insurance company stating factory fitted immobiliser is present.
