So it appears that I was a bit late getting a new key setup for my ‘99. ECS Tuning no longer offers both halves, just the key part. I need both parts, the whole thing is trashed and old.

There are eBay ones of course. Tempting at $30 for 2!

What I want is a new key *asembly* or two, with VW logos and all, for my ‘99. I’m not trying to reprogram it myself or go cheap, I just want new.

What are my options? ECS has the 2002-2005 key (both halves) available still? The Chinese ones look nice? Will a dealer even program either of those?

Any info appreciated!

(Why do I want a key now you ask?) just reached a decision to keep the NB for at least a few more years, just put some killer aftermarket VW branded wheels on, and really looking to take care of annoying things. This is one of them.

I ordered a key shell from Amazon, and had a local place put the old bits into the new shell. Works great. Cheap, too. Just make sure you get one, from anywhere, for the right year. They are different.
