Most remote control key fobs found on newer cars (especially luxury models) such as BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Porsche, Volkswagen etc. are now flip type. Some bread and butter models do come with flip remote control keys, and I'm sure many of you would like one for your car as well!
Why would you want one? First you got to admit it looks cooler than the standard Proton Key Fob. Second, great space saving! I usually keep my Proton Saga FLX's key in my pocket, and they tend to poke around and it feels uncomfortable especially when sitting down. Also, sometimes they scratch my phone if they are sharing the same pocket. Third, did I mention it looks cool?

The build quality of the Proton flip key remote control fob isn't top notch, as minor modifications are required to fit my Proton Saga FLX key. The top of the remote holder needs to be trimmed off or else the cover would not fully fit. Minor issue there. One thing I really dislike is the red and green buttons. They should include an all black option! Apart from that, there are small gaps at the side of the Proton flip key, but otherwise the build is still pretty solid and cool!
