As far as I am aware, the functions of the remote are coded into the BCU (Body Control Unit) so you'd presumably need a Mk2 BCU which in turn will have to be coded to the car.
Duncan or Monk could probably be more precise but that's my understanding
Yes, a facelift BCU should do the job, coded to the car with T4 (Testbook version 4.Computer Diagnostic System) to keep the key fob remotes working. A member on the OC in Germany has done it.
BigRuss tried to get this to work on mine too, adding the remote boot unlocking into the ZCS codes but it wasn't having it, it just kept setting the alarm off and wouldn't work. It needs another look to get it to work. He was only going to charge Ã‚Â£15 for the BCU, which is dirt cheap compared to eBay prices.
