Thanks but check out where Cohuna is and you will see I'm 4-5 Hrs from Melb, I tried the largest locksmith in Ballarat -I'm also in Australia...and recently got a spare key (from a locksmith in Melbourne) made for my 2004 Honda CBR600RR. It was an aftermarket key...and he used an electronic device to clone the signal from my original key - and then transfer the information onto my new blank key (which they also cut).
I rang that same locksmith today (out of curiosity)...and he said it's possible they can do VW keys from the 2003 era - if it was bought into their store to check if compatible with what they have on their system.
Maybe you could find a place that can do it...then get a refund on your OEM key you've requested?
You might have to ring several locksmiths...and avoid the small one minute style key places - that often don't have the equipment that's required for key programming.
