The stupid part is it's your same remote, they are instructed to remove the switchblade from your remote and provide you with a key. Now that leaves you with an ugly remote and a useless switchblade button. Way to go GM....

So now instead of having a key/fob that is impossible for my knee to make contact with, there will be a key with a fob hanging from it that can catch on your pants and turn off the car.

Awesome.

Like I've been saying, I'll keep my deadly switchblade.

LOL , now what is going to catch on your pants? There isn't anything on the fob that could possibly do that...

My dealer's already done the modification and cut me a key. Looks just like that. The problem is they used a generic key blank and had it cut. GM told them that since it wasn't an official key they still couldn't deliver the car to me.

How much more 'official' does it have to be. It was done at a dealer and there is a bowtie on the key haha

No bow tie on the key means not official. They used generic blanks presumably because they didn't change oem keys in stock.

I can't see from the pick, did they fill up the gap in the FOB with something where the old key was??

If not, what an abortion!

Haha. It's just as likely as me hitting the key with my knee.

Actually now that i think of it, the new "design" may not catch on my pants, but it could very well if I'm wearing shorts. All my shorts are cargo shorts. Those things catch on everything.

And from the description a few posts ago, they remove the key from the fob and don't replace it with anything to fill the gap. Leaving the possibility for it to catch on something.

Hmm I see aftermarket opportunity to make a little screwdriver that will go in place of the flip out key part, that could prove handy....
