im looking to install the evo-one system with the THAR-vw3 and its showing a sacrifice key wraped to complete the installation... im confused as to what the function is, as i thought the modual would learn and act as a transponder for the key. is there a way around this with a more direct fit system?

Think you might be looking at the wrong guide. There are two guides, one with key wrap, one without. The no key wrap requires the TB-VW as well. 

(am assuming it's a beetle)



Guide with TB-VW (no key required):
