Hi Brent:

Congrats on your new 1997, you are Toronto, right? What colour is it?

Don't bother with the 1997 keyless remote, you are in luck and since you
have a 1997, you can "upgrade" to the newer switchblade style key/remote
(as I did). The cool thing is that it's a 3 button remote (4 if you
include the panic button) and it allows you to open the trunk without
unlocking the rest of the car, it actually releases the trunk so you
don't have to push the button on the trunk lid.

It comes in 2 pieces, the key part and the remote part and it snaps
together. You will need to get the key cut at the dealer, all you need
to do is give them your VIN.

Remote half - 4D0 837 231 E 01C
Key part - 4D0 837 246 B INB

I paid $78 for the key and $67 (CAD) for the remote part from the dealer
about 2.5 years ago.

Also, you can do some trick things if you have access to a VAG 1552 such
as controlling your windows and sunroof with the remote and allowing all
4 doors to unlock with one push of the button.
