New Owner - 2 questions

Hello, i recently purchased #096 but don't have the manual and have a few questions:

a) Do i really have to turn the key in the glove box every time i want to start the car or is there a way to automate that?

b) my car seems hesitant to start. It eventually starts but takes a few seconds holding down the start button. Is that normal or should i look at replacing a battery or something else?

Welcome and congratulations with your new Spyker.

You don't have to turn the key. It is basically a keyless start. Having the key in the glove compartment should be enough. It doesn't need to be in the ignition at all. Most likely the battery in the key is dead. If you replace the battery, the car should start when you have the key with you and press the start button.

One of the owners will probably have an answer to that question. Just hang in there.

A new battery will prevent many little problems.

I have a few links for you. Cannot find the battery number right now, but the specs are in the first link.

Thanks, followed the directions but they must have put extra things and pipes in the battery box when they ran the supercharger. Didn't feel comfortable disconnecting those so gonna take it to a mechanic and see if they can do it

Replacing the battery of the car is a wise thing to do. But don't forget to replace the battery in the ignition key. That replacement is needed for the keyless start.

IIRC, you can reset the Audi key by holding the two outermost buttons for 5 seconds, close to, but not in the lock.

Eveything works now, replaced all batteries. Seems like i have to leave the key out completely for keyless entry. Does every spyker have an audi key and another remote on it besides the spyker fob or did someone add an aftermarket alarm to it?

The alarm key fob on the Audi key is from the Clifford alarm system, so it goes with the car.
