High Security Keys

The following is an alphabetical list of automobiles made by Volkswagen that use a high security laser cut key.

High Security Laser cut keys are also known as Sidewinder keys due to the snakelike groove cut into the key. They are made of a thicker metal than a normal key and will have the groove cut into both sides of the key by a machine known as a laser cutter.

Some high security laser cut keys also contain a transponder chip and require programming as well. Some Volkswagen vehicles use a high security key or FOB that can only be produced by the dealer. We have listed this type key as Dealer Key or Dealer FOB.
