Default First time GTI Ownerwith APR stage II !

Hello to all, just bought a 2013 GTI (shadow blue) with APR upgrades (stage II, air filter and exhaust). I cant compare it to any other GTIs because i havent drive them before the one I just bought. This little car is a rocket. I bought it with APR stage II and its very fast. I bought it used and i havent done anything to it. I do have a couple of questions, I bought the car and it only had one key, so I went ahead and bought another one off ebay. I had it roogrammed and iIt locks and opens the car but when the key is inserted in the ignition it says KEY NOT IN RANGE. My car doesnt have the push to start button. I was searching around for answers and I have seen a bit of both, that the key cant be programmed and that it can be programmed. Any go byes on how to fix this and make this key accepted by the car? Thanks in advance!

Your replacement key can only be ordered and programmed by a VW dealer as they have access to VW computer online.
