Well, contrary to what some may expect of me due to my reputation for modding (actually, I think Jay beats me on that one!), I favour the big round silver VW logo keyring - It's like the front grill logo.

Tip: Change the actual split-ring because the gap on the GTI fob where the ring attaches is too narrow and causes some split-rings to be restricted in movement. Phew! Long description for something so simple!

There is a Blue and silver enamel VW logo kyring - this looks good, similar to that described above but the VW logo is set into the blue enamel.

Just strap it to your VW Bottle opener!!!

Large and bulky I know! But hey! you wont spend half the day trying to remember where the smeg you put your car key's, as it will be like carrying half a combination ring spanner, around with you!!

Mine's the chrome one. I notice from the pics on Snoopy's link that both have that large flat split-ring that needs changing in order to hang freely from the key unit.

The big chrome one is the only way to go. Oh and the key fobs have changed now so the Siler bit doesn't "pop off" anymore. grin.gif

Prob not, mines prob a cheap ripoff like most things in Turkey seem to be but it looks and feels the same as described on ebay.

Not wishing to pi55 on everyones matches but my wife had a very bad RTA a number of years ago and sustained serious injuries to her legs. frown.gif The paramedic said she was very lucky not to have a metal keyring and a bunch of keys on her ignition key as they would have made matters much worse. EEK2.GIF

Because of this I never have any other key on my car key or any kind of keyring. NONO3.GIF

Next time you sit in your car with the key in the ignition, just look where any dangly keys are in relation to your knee. UHOH7.GIF Thats why most manufactures are now looking at Knee bags and moving the ignition key further up the dash.
