    Is this a pet hate of everyone elses?

    Worn buttons, and generally tatty keys! Also a single key when buying a new car!

    Can you get new cases for these Honda keys reasonably cheaply?

    Yep, One my questions I ask on the initial phone, "how many keys does it come with?"

    Yep, there's a few thread on this.

    @Chrispike , I'm not sure what key / remote fob combo you have at the moment, but there are cheaper alternatives / replacements out there. I wrote up a guide on combining the key and separate remote fob into a flip key case here. Though it is specific to my Civic, it should be same for other Honda models that have the key and remote separate.

    If you have a key and remote in one, there are many cheaper options you can use to replace the key, such as this or this. Yes, they both look the same, except that as per the descriptions, one has space for a transponder (first one), and one doesn't. You can also get 3 button versions for about the same price.

    I quite like having the remote and the key seperate to be honest, but yes having a worn fob has annoyed me a little, but found some good condition ones in the scrappies and now have 5 or 6 fobs.

    Used to have that in my Saab Harvey, but reprogramming Saab fob was a dealer/ garage with supercomputer job. The local saab specialist were always happy to help though, Normally cos I spent a wodge of cash everytime I went there!!

    I know the feeling mate, got a friend who has a '99 9-3 Turbo (Tuned by BSR) and he only has one key and fob, it was a nightmare trying to work out if it could be programmed at home. Too bad that Opcom can't do Saab, only Vauxhall and Opel cars.
