    Bit of tidying up and you should have a decent motor there mate.

    Those keys are horrendous mind you, they would be first on my hitlist I think. Heaven knows what some folk do to these things. Have a look at this:

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3-BUTTON-R...item2a19c70c84

    As long as your remotes still actually work, it would be simple enough to just swap the key/blade and internals onto a new fob and it would look muchly better!

    You will still be left with the sort of "U" shaped bit of plastic that the actual blade is held in, but it'll still look 100% better than they do at present.

    You can also buy a flip key conversion, there are a few folk on here, including myself, that have done them. It's a bit hit or miss though as to whether you will actually get the right blade from some of the ebay sellers, plus you obviously still then need to pay to get the new blade cut. (Or, you can risk hacking your current blade to the right size/shape, but I didn't want to risk that!)

    Unless you have your heart set on a flip key, I reckon just going with replacing the damaged fobs like for like would be the easiest option by far.

    I got mine from E-BAY trader name priceneer I think, he is Hong Kong based and only charged about £3 each incl delivery. They took about 10 days to arrive, and the service and correspondance from him was first class.
