Custom Key Fob

If you're tired of the big clunky key fob, you definitely want to check this out. I ordered two for myself today.

Great find!!! I am about to order 2 also but what happens if you have to go to the dealer and he needs to stick the Key into the machine that he/she has sitting next to the computer. Also how do you remove the bulk from the original keys I am looking at the key right now and honestly I have no idea how to remove it. Confused in Arizona.

It is not "Old School" if you can not put a Weber on it.

On the back of the fob the centre part that says MINI lifts up to release the outter ring. It's pretty easy to chip if you use a screw driver so a small plastic trim tool is best. If you remove the emergency key the notch is easier to get to.

Understeer - is when you hit the wall with the front wing; oversteer - is when you hit the wall with the back wing; horsepower - is how fast you hit the wall; torque - is how far you move the wall when you hit it.

Check page 34 in your Owners Manual. Has pictures and everything.
