car key duplicates
I bought a one year old VW Golf last year from a VW dealer and was told that there was only one key. In the past I have always had two sets of keys with every car I have bought. Is this now normal? And where can I get a spare key from if I choose not to do this through the dealer. Thanks!

Yes, normal. You would normally get one plip key and one plain turn key with a chip in it.
