I have a 2007 VW Golf City (Canadian car based off of the MK IV platform with the 2.0L engine), and it's a fantastic little car. Has power windows, cruise control, rear window and mirror defrosters, etc! However, there's one thing I'm really missing: remote start. In Canadian winters, it's so nice to be able to heat up the engine before you enter the car.
So I'd like to retrofit a remote start. However, I don't want to get a non-VW key fob. Ideally, I'd like to get one of the VW key fobs that they have on new cars. Would it be possible to retrofit a remote start and use one of the new VW key fobs?
Otherwise, is it possible to have a little fob dedicated solely to remote start? Or even an app on my phone?
But ideally I'd like to use one of the new VW fobs. So is it possible and how would I go about it?
