Hello. I just wanted to let everyone know that these devries key fobs via Shapeways also fit the key for the MINI Countryman F60. I just got mine and I think it looks great. So if you are a Countryman owner checking out this thread, thought I'd let you know the rev 3 design is an excellent choice.

I got a low profile V3 in orange, but I decided it was not close enough to my body color so I hit it with a coat of sunflower yellow Krylon Fusion.

I ordered another one. It should be here this week. Will post pics when it arrives. Wanted one for the spare key, though, I think I might keep this new one for the daily key.

Very nice, but requires way too much manual dexterity to assemble for me.

Leather one is awesome!! Will you have different colors? I'd love black leather with red stitching, to match other bits inside my car... Put me on the list!

That leather key fob cover is nice, but my husky puppy would try and eat my keys even more. Those fobs are darn near $300 to replace... ask me how I know

Also looking for the STL for the fob cover. maybe I can print one with spikes all over to make it less desirable to chew.

Ooops, I just tried it and it failed for me too.

Upon further investigation, I found out why in the fine print. It's because I didn't create the design, it looks like referral codes only work for your own creations, not those designed by others. Sorry, I guess we both learned something there.

Good luck though, if I get another discount or hear of one, I'll pass it on asap.

You're welcome.

Here's some good news...I emailed Shapeways and asked if they had any discount codes currently. They said not yet, but they should have something around Thanksgiving day that they'll send out to members. In case I forget, just make a post to remind me and I'll put it up here for you.

Cheers!
