KeyChains!

Let's see those keychains. Looking at several options, firstly the BMW M, but I also see a lot of those "remove before..." red aviation tags too.

It'd be awesome to know why you like it, where you got it from, and more importantly must look nice too.

I have a lot of CF products, as is my interior trim. Open to suggestions....let's see those pics!

Thanks,
H

Problem I see/read with these additions, is the range of how far the FOB will work. I like to walk upto my car and do auto down of my windows. If the range is much less as I've read, by the time I get to my M5, windows and sunroof wont all be 100% open.

These look nice but Carbon fiber actually is able to block the RF from the transmitter of the key fob. Its very apparent that Carbon fiber acts as a RF block when in something like a carbon tub Mclaren or other super car. the cell phone service in one is terrible due to all the CF blocking the signal! its just a material property you can not overcome

Doubt those cheapo covers are made out of real carbon fiber.

no, something that small is actually cheap in CF, the variations in cost for CF are for pre preg, and vacuum packing large pieces. small keychain covers are cheap enough to make in something as small as a toaster oven. you can buy the mat online these days really cheap, the rest is just the R&D for a mold.

I got the key case when I purchased my previous car. It makes the key bulkier but I love the material.

Would someone please explain to me why you want to make what is already a pretty large fob that you carry in your pocket, why you want to make it even bulkier? I just don't understand.
