Hi All,

Can someone post a picture of their 2007 exige S key, I picked up my car yesterday, and they key just look so ordinary and without any lotus logo or whatsoever. I just hope I did not get a duplicate from the dealer. In the User Manual, it states there is a control button and keyhole light. Btw, I have the cobra alarm fob and system installed.

Thanks,

A

sounds about right. I've got a 2006 and there is nothing at all special about the key or fob. Kinda disappointing, but once you put it in and turn her on, all is forgiven.

Sorry guys, here's a better picture. I'm just paranoid about the fact that there is no logo on the key and the master original key is sitting somewhere else. Looks like a key from GM.

Maybe I am missing something, but does it matter as long as it starts the car and opens the boot?

Welcome!

Yeah, the key is lame. But, that's about where all disappointment ends. Congratulations on your new car!

No, it doesn't matter....

Both are Master Original Keys.

I think they're cool.

And they take up less room in your pocket!

Hahahahah, ahh01010 that's the right key. Too bad huh? Looks like at least one new owner thinks they should have put a little more effort into styling the key ;)

Lotus engineers did extensive R&D to find which mods would create the best weight reduction for the money. Removing the key light was one of them. Unfortunately my 05 key still has the light on it. :(

yes the key is hella lame.
Although the good thing is I can leave my key on my desk at work, and I don't have to worry about my coworkers finding out that I own a Lotus.

Regarding the plain key and the VERY short range of the alarm remote, I figured that these were theft deterrent features.
