Go on then, here are mine:

I'm afraid my original BMW dealer one is looking a bit tatty now as some of the enamel has come off, but it has been rolling round my pocket for 10 years. :lol:

I won the BMWCC one at last years Tatton BMW Festival. :D

I think you can guess what the other set fit. :wink:

Here's my carbon fibre ///M keyring.
Reduces my 0 - 60 time by 0.00000002% :)

It has some history. Given to me by my friend who worked for Scotthall body shop. He did the job of replacing my diff mount & the whole boot floor pan. He gave it to me as thinks for videoing his wedding.

Incidently how sad are we I posting photos of keyrings :?

Here's mine:

Quite rare since Nissan trademarked the Z logo before BMW, and threatened court action if production of the above keyrings continued. At least that's what I heard.

Robin, I think the same, but just be content in the knowledge we didn't start the thread. :P

It would do if I took it back - he didn't set it up that way but tbh I've not bothered.

The alarm is great though just remembering how to take the anti hijack is a pain though when I take it into the garage.

now i know why my friends call it a girls car.... you and your teddy bears are giving the car a bad reputation!
