I got my Z in May, a few weeks later I got the key/remote in the pictures. The paint started to leave immediately and it looked old within a week. About June the actual key part became loose and got looser. Last night when I removed the key from the ignition the key part flew across the car and hit my Wife in the leg. Thank god it did not hit her eye.

We were going to dinner and so I had to put the key in the ignition, slip the broken flip part onto it to turn and get the chip in proximity and then came the hassle of getting it out 3 more times without tools.

I sent a message to, their response was there is a 30 day warranty so all we will do is "fix it" (I assume this means put the electronics in another same bad quality case and send me a new blank)

Why would I want another crummy case? I had to pay the dealer to program all of my keys which is not cheap and will have to do it again to replace this pos.
