The family album shows that for the '96 A6 the remote transmittor to
be a 'add on' to the alarm system with its own control unit (it's listed
under the Extras section) whereas the later years it's all integrated.
Of course the alarm control unit itself has different part numbers but
one can't tell whether they are compatible (I would guess not).
