Just got a 2003 new beetle - my dad's been pestering me to put my poor old 93 eurovan into semi-retirement. The bug came with 2 keys, a switchblade main key and a valet key I guess. My question is, can I just drive the car with the valet key and leave the main key home as a spare? The main key is in fair condition, working but may not hold up to everyday use. Someone told me the valet key isn't supposed to be used all the time, but I can't see why. I can open the car, start and drive it, the trunk opens from the button on the inside. Why is there a special different key just to have a locked glove box? In case I like to stash my life savings in the car and then hand it off to valet parking? What am I missing?
