Here's an Idea..

So seeing as how these new 'laser' keys are so expensive... is there some sort of case/holder for them? I ask because my dog seems to always find mine sitting on the table and now the panic button is runined and keeps setting the car alarm off. I'm about to have to start using my spare, and want to protect this one.. like a little hard case, or leather of some sort ? I just didnt know if one already existed - thanks for the info.
How about this for an idea? YOu can buy a replacement key of EbAY cheap as hell, as long as the outer housing is good. The Remove your batery cover, and the logicboard from you old key will slide right out
( with a little force ).Slip your logic board in the new key housing, replace the battery's and Voila!! Replaced key...
I found this out when I had to repair one of the SMT chips on my key that had fallen off and the dealer wanted me to buy a brand new key. NOT!! it's been working great every since.
The secret here is, most folks only have cosmetic damages to their keys. If the circuit board is intact, and you have minimal skills, you can buy ANY MB Class type key from 25 bucks on Ebay, and swap your card. I've done this same thing also with my Acura key.
