Oh, for heavens sake. Dumb dealer.
As long as the reader coil is good, and the ID chip in the key is valid, you can use VAG-Com to reprogram it.
Using the VIN from the car, the dealer can order a new master key with the correct ID chip. Takes about a week, and costs about $80. Been there, done that. I now have two keys that work!
