my hunch is carbonfiber. it is lighter than aluminum but tough to paint or clear lacquer. using it on the roof decreases weight and improves center of gravity. i think they use a dark resin finish on the m6

hmm, but I would think they would paint over it in fear of being "ricey "?

no i think at $80k they earn the right to leave its weave exposed.



then again, the late 90s trend in germany was to wear suits with the tags still attached.

so i cut some self adhesive closed cell foam padding and made a key guard. problem solved.



this is version 1 for now, I'll certainly be coming back to retrace and cut out a more OE looking shape to fit the curves etc better

you have never seen this because its getto as ****. man up and find a real solution. http://mykeyport.com/product.html
i use one for all my keys, even has a flash drive.

Nasioc these days is really disappointing me. makes me sad to own a subaru. sure i went through my rice stage. but really people. if your going to change your car, at least make it better and save yourself the embarrassment when you go to sell it.

While keyports are cool, they're only right under the perfect scenario. I like my remote, and by getting a keyport, it would only make my key chain bigger, and I don't need all six spaces, so it's useless, especially for $80. The key gaurd is a really good idea. It's not rice at all.

Yes, due to the fact that someone somewhere in the world puts a piece of foam/rubber (whatever it is) to eliminate noise from the keys makes me sad to own a subaru. In fact, I think you and I should both sell our subies and buy something better. Like a Yugo. *sarcasm

Yep, a roughly 1inch piece of foam rubber in a spot that most people will never notice just screams "ricer".


Btw, thanks for the link. I might actually buy one.

Well according to mighty car mods: since black attracts heat, and heat rises, it makes your car lighter, therefore a greater power to weight ratio hahaha

if you read, my second comment was talking about nasioc in general. it just makes me upset to spend a few hours on other forums, and then to come back to nasioc and see half the crap people post as custom or unique.

it is not that heavy at all, if you grab maybe 6 keys they are about the same.

Haha so my black car is much lighter than a white one? lol. I would think a black roof would be a pain because it heats up the interior
