& I just purchased one of the covers, as my original complaint- the fob is too slippery for me. No Longer!
Welcome to the key fob in a silicone condom club! May our ranks grow and prosper!!

I do like our MB key fob. I did want to make mine a little bit unique and when searching the Internets I also found the cheapo silicone option. But putting a rubber rubber on a $600 or more? Piece of car remote just seemed a little silly to me. (kind of like those people who get a latest and greatest smartphone, shell out 1K+ and get a $4 case to protect it) I opted to go a little bit of a custom route and got a matching key fob to my paint code, it's even ceramic coated just like my exterior.

Do you mind sharing where you got it and if they match all the colors on the E Class?

Much as I like it, I likely wouldn't go to that much trouble, but still very nice!

Actually plenty of them on Amazon. Easy to find with a search. Painted, colored, Aluminum, silicone, whatever you want.

Did a search and couldn't find any that are color coded to Mercedes paint. I can find blue. I can find red. I can find silver. But I could not find Lunar Blue as an example. It's not a big deal. My comment was in response to someone who suggested the fob being discussed might have been custom painted. I would not go to the trouble of having a fob custom painted to match the exterior of my car.

HA! I thought he was being facetious.

Suby..... is it indeed a custom paint and ceramic? You are nuts.

They are only awful because they are fake diamonds.
