worn out key remote.

One of my key / remotes is very worn - the 3 rubber buttons are worn down smooth.
I don't want to buy a whole new remote.
Just wondering if anyone has replaced the cover or if there is a more modern alternative cover.
Best place for purchase.

have you tried this product yourself? is the button cover made of "plastic" or "rubber" ?

the original OEM one .. is a rubbery material. I bought a replacement one from ebay before .. and it came in a "plasticy" material. The plasticky material (because it was hard) ended up wearing out my push button on the circuit board.

If this one has rubbery push button (soft) that would be perfect.

It's a OEM replacement. It's definitely not plasticy.

Your Porsche dealer can provide a replacement for the button side. And a new crest for the other side if you need it.
