Looking for leather key fob...

I'm trying to find some new leather key fobs but have had no luck on eBay or Google; anyone here have a source?

Thank you

Guess I wasn't using the correct search term on eBay; found what I was looking for and it's called a 'Genuine Mercedes leather key holder case', not a key fob as I had thought. Listing had four available and I bought two; two left if anyone could use one. (I don't know the seller, it's not my listing, so I'm not selling or promoting anything... informational in nature only.

I state this only because I'm not a fan of dealers here posting vehicles and such 'for sale' in these threads when those threads should only be listed in the 'For Sale' forum.)

Item number: 320255225161

eBay Motors: Genuine Mercedes Leather key holder case RARE HTF chain (item 320255225161 end time Jun-01-08 10:40:21 PDT)

My 560 has the maroon colored version of that fob. Would like a spare just in case.. but have not seen any. Were the black ones offered at a certain year and the maroon at another?

they don't offer the maroon or brown anymore. just the black. the new black one looks like the picture and is made of a plastic-like leather

Just wanted to post an update: I bought two ‘leather key fobs’ from eBay seller gabe527 and you were correct... while the listing says 'leather', it's more like plastic than leather. It looks and feels like crap and it turns out the eBay seller is worse than crap. Most unprofessional seller I've ever done business with on eBay... too many buyers post 'positive feedback' when it really isn't true just so the seller doesn't retaliate. Nobody likes to admit they got burned, but I sure did. I had to learn the hard way; hopefully the forum members here won’t get hosed like me with this turkey seller…

Glad to hear your oppinion.. I was close to getting one. I want a maroon one though, as thats what my 560 originally had/has and I'd like a spare just "incase". However, I've not seen them anywhere. Anyone know if there's a part number for it?

I have the black one's available on my site.. Mercedes lists them as leather when you purchase them...all mine are older stock and having just opened one up to double check, it sure looks like leather on the back side..the front is very finished/polished. I have some OLD ones for my cars, and they do have a different feel.

Colours haven't been available for YEARS...just black:-/

Wow! I just found the brown one I have for my car, which my wife is now going to carry as her key, doesn't appear to have been used much, if at all!

I may have to revoke it and let her use the other spare key.
