Key fob case

Any recommendations on the best key fob case to get? I was looking at these silicone made ones which look pretty nice. Note, it's not the right model. I wasn't able to find one for the 328i.

The BMW one is leather, is fairly high quality, fits the fob perfectly, slides out of the way, and allows you to still hook it up to a key ring... and it's like $25 and comes in four different colors.

I guess it's to protect the keyfob from getting scratched.

That's why I got it. With comfort access the key fob is now in my pocket 100% of the time, which has resulted in the occasional unintended trunk popping incident....a spare fob is around if my wife needs to drive the car for some reason.

Good point...I didn't think of that. With my current key, I must use a key cover just to make sure I don't get holes in my pockets, not to mention scratching the phone when the two happen to be in my pocket.

BTW, doesn't the car come with a case for the key? The E46 did.

I wouldn't want anything to happen to such a nice case like that. Do they make a case for the case?
