Need some help lookin for an item

I've been looking all over the web for the little Porsche emblem that goes on to my key.
I seems to have falling off somewhere and cant find it.
Anyone know a place I can find it?
Thank you for looking.

I assume your talking about the Silver part embedded in the Black plastic part of the key?

Probably cost you a new key for that...

Perhaps you should just get the attached tag for under $20.

I read that hanging your entire key set on the ignition will lead to early failure of the ignition switch mechanisms.

Hey just an FYI on that key crest, I have an original key fob from a 2000 MY and bought that crest, it is slightly larger than the original so it does not fit.

What I did was hold the crest in place with a small screw driver (so not to burn fingers) and then held a soldering iron on the crest for a few seconds till it heated up and then melted into place.

Worked like a charm and did not have to glue it.
