    Default Pre facelift flick key problem...

    right down to it,i got a new style flick blade key for my 03 reg pre facelift, ive got a slight problem and was wondering if any of you lads had come across it?
    when the key is in the ignition and im driving my hands/fingers catch the end of the key body when turning the wheel and its getting quite annoying now,im 6ft 2" and have finally found a good driving position so realy dont want to mess about with the steering wheel.
    when compared to the old key the flick key is longer.

    Can't think how you would catch the key body but I have the old fashioned key.

    Two options. Cut a bit off the new key or a lump out of your hand. .. So annoying when things just don't come together...

    I dont have that problem and I'm 6'4". Maybe because I am a lazy driver , just using 1 hand to steer.

    Never had any problem like that with my flip key. How do you hold the wheel to be able to catch the key?
