Default Cool key blanks?

Does anyone know of a source for kew keys that work with our cars? Something like the Mercedes "switch blade" key or something like that?

some one had cool STI keys on here a while back but you had to get em from Japan and it end up costing like $60 per key... not worth it.

Sorry guys, I don't have a digital camera! If you want to check out pics I think that Summit might have some pics on their sight. I know that their crappy little "import" catalog has pics, and the subaru keys only come in blue I think!

I was successful in transplanting my key into an Audi A4 switchblade key thing....

I'm eventually going to wire up my alarm remote...and then It'll be complete.

Butterfly key is sold on Summit's website. Make sure someone competent cuts the key, that's an expensive blank to make a mistake on. Unless you have access to a key cutter, have a locksmith do it.

Yeah dude, mine works fine. As long as someone competent cuts the key and puts it on the wire wheel a little, it'l be great! I paniced when mine came in the mail though, someone at the warehouse had checked the Nissan box on the package instead of the subaru box. The invoice was right though and I've had no problems with the key.

Yeah I know, but what threw me was that there is a box to check for subaru, and it wasn't checked. I haven't seen any nissan keyways that match that of the subaru but maybe I haven't been looking at the right nissan keys!
