You don't need that extra keyring. Epic fail.

I tried it without, but preferred it with the extra articulation afforded by the additional minor satellite ring.

Apologies to Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG

On second glance there are actually two satellite rings.....only someone with great forethought would add that third ring, no more tight key turns for you, well done that man.

What's next on the customisation list??? May I be so brave as to comment that leaving a third (backless) driving glove in the 'box' would mean a swift change should you have any unsightly chaffing or spillages....

I'm sorry but I cannot agree about those rings. Too many. Rattle rattle.

To be fair, it was the key head I was referring to.

Whether the actual rings stay is open to question, it all depends what the attachment options are like on the remote fobs (that are on order), when they appear.













Jeepers, is this repesentative of how an4l every 993 thread is? Confused

The Dr will only forgive your clumsy attempt at a mod once the offending ring has been removed....... Smile

I think PeterS has uploaded images of his nipple rings. Apologies for that on his behalf. To be honest it's difficult to keep him sober these days.

GT4, you'll be okay here, just remember to keep your car fully customised and in factory spec utilising both Porsche only parts and all available third party vendors for wheels, exhausts, cell cats, body kits, wings, chips, engine mounts, spoiler bearings, ISV cleans, tyres, windscreen replacements, headlamp upgrades, boot carpets, pocket clips, blue interiors, tip gearboxes, stearing wheels, COG set ups, dampers both Bilstien and Monroe (one each side f&r) and you'll be fine (don't mention tool kits).

I like that you have eased yourself in gently with a key refurb, although posting it within PeterS' earshot was brave. Where's Sam????

Good luck. wack

Well, my very first bit of DIY was to gliptone the leather service folder, replace batteries in keys, replace bulb in key and take toothbrush to key to remove 15 years worth of dead skin and crud.

Never (whilst I am still in "authentic" mode)
