Hey guys,

I tried searching, and couldn't find anything helpful.

I want to replace my key fob with a carbon fiber one. As in remove the guts of my key, and place into a carbon version. I would prefer not to wrap it, not worth it to make it look cheaper.

Is this even possible, and does anyone know how/where to get one?

Maybe some of you have seen one, I know the Spec V's have it.

Thanks,
Mista Cheese

Ahh! I see, thanks Nick. I assumed, I should have known better. It does look good in the photo's i've seen, maybe worth looking into.

you know the more i look at it, the more it looks like a casing that just goes around our key. Kinda like those bic lighter covers they sell at gas stations.

Carbon fiber blocks RF transmission, so it's the biggest reason why there aren't any full carbon fiber cases out there. (The SpecV cover is an exception, but the bottom is still aluminum to help mitigate that problem.)

Is the Spec V cover purchasable? If it is, it's probably a billion dollars.

I have have one SpecV case on my spare key. It's beautiful dry carbon and works fine but it's over $600 msrp. To me it was well worth it to have a key different to an Altima key.

I say someone arrange a GB if it's possible

Or a vendor could produce a similar key case which would be a limited run with a serial number and your forum name or whatever you want milled on that Al block

Say 35 pieces, I call number 35 :p..... 23 or 10, depends on price and feedback

As much as I would like to differentiate my key, I am thinking carbon wrap might be better - especially given the comment that real CF blocks the radio waves. I like having long range on my remote.

I don't like that it won't fit in the key slot, I keep my key in there all the time.

I can arrange a group buy for those who really want them. Alternatively, and less Spec V wannabe, why not get something like this for $20!

Come in silver (shown below), black, blue, red, yellow etc...

As long as it looks good installed, I would be interested.

Any link to where one could purchase that?

Evo911, great job. I've never seen the 1080 in person is it good from far, but far from good?
