Doh just looked at that how-to and realise its for the battery swap.

I'm pretty sure that it can be done but someone will confirm for you soon.

You need to swap the little black chip over as this is what sends the correct signal to complete the EWS circuit:thumbsup

You buy a lock set from the main dealers? If yes then the chip should be installed and programmed for your car
