  • Moving the internal electronics of an Audi 3-key remote

    I recently got a replacement case for my Audi 3-key remote. The kit only comes with the actual housing, so the idea is to replace everything inside.

El chipset cumple una función, y los diseñadores de esta placa base no son tontos y le han colocado un disipador para que refrigere correctamente.
