My buddy locked his keys in his 300Z constantly!!! He finally put in a relay switch for the power locks, tucked under his driver's side skirt. It was simple to put in, it would pop the locks but his alarm would still go off, but once inside with his keys he would just disarm it.

If your Mr. Forgetful, think about this mod. I don't know if it will work on VW's, but it's worth a shot.

Spare key and lock smith are common knowledge. There's no other way to open the car, alarm will sound.
