    Hi Ashish,

    Are you talking about the desmodronic key from Fiat itself ? When I checked it last week, they said that they will place a request and the key is shipped directly from Italy and costs 8000+ Rs and the programming on the key for lock/unlock will be done at dealer level. I am sure that if it was 4500 many of us would have bought a second key from fiat itself.

    I am adding few pictures of the key fob I bought from ebay.com for 630. I am sure it cant match the quality of Fiat OEM but 8000 is a lot just to fix the buttons of a flip key.

    sorry for the bad quality. Was taken in the mobile phone. Second and third pictures are of my original remote after replacing the buttons.

    below is the comparison of the two key fobs and the worn out button of original remote.

    Thanks a lot for the pictures!
    I checked my inbox and on not finding any message from you, I concluded that you had forgotten my request! ;)

    I tried attaching those pictures to the email, but was unable to do so. Then I thought let it be useful for everyone looking at this thread and posted it here. Hope the picture clears your doubt on the chrome bit of the remote.
