I would buy one of these kits. My "L" registered 1994 216 Cabriolet has 2 infrared fobs. One of them works, but one doesn't,

I would like to get back to a fully working system.

Brilliant work there. I'm keeping this in mind should I know of any owner of infrared cars in need of new fobs.

It does have central locking via the key blade though
I 2nd that, if you manage to make it work, I'd be interested...

There has since been a couple of updates to the pscan system that we have been working with them to resolve a few issue of which we haven't had any issues since (touch laminate coated wood).

Thanks for the interest and show of support on this project.

I don't think we are far off. I really need to get one fully installed in a car and tested for a while just to be sure.... its tricky for me as I don't actually one one, my own coupe being a 1998 model

..still need to work out the costings.

@rjessett I sent you a PM a few days ago but you may have missed it, some additional thoughts on your work and bits of R8 history to get you going...
