Eric: You could be right. My "sample" of cars that work with switchblade
remotes was Sean Douglas's 97 S6 and my 98 C4 A6 avant. It could be a
frequency thing where the 96 spec cars (including the 95.5s) used a
different one than the 97 and up.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought the switch blade remote
worked with the 1997 cars.  I recall reading that the switch blade
remote is 
not compatible with the RF system in the 1996 cars (which also have the

side-cut keys).
