Good telepathy!  I forgot to ask how important the two tools, VAG 
#ook-ook and
VAG #urq-urq ;) , are to making the job doable.  The red Bentley always 
has pictures
of all of these odd little toys but no clue to $$ or availability.  (or 
of TRUE need)

I was hoping the discs are fairly common to the 4/5 cyl designs.  I've 
rekeyed door
and ignitions by mixing+matching the new bits with the old, but in this 
case there are
zero extra discs on hand and judging from the ticky-ticky under the hood 
I'll be needing
lots of +0.05 several times over.
