Everyone mentions the paint chipping... Don't you all have touch up paint, and wouldn't that solve the problem?

Just put them in and forget about them. They shouldn't chip unless you pick at them or try to remove them with a sharp object. It's a nice look imho. Be sure to clean the keyhole before you put them in.

Love mine - got them for 5+ years. Never had any issue with them.

Others may answer differently, but for me, yes, I have touch up paint. My car is rio yellow. The plastic is black. The amount of touch up paint it would need to make it look right is substantial. I don't want to do it. I have decided it's easier to just order new ones. They are inexpensive. I like them to be perfect, and my touch-up paint-job wouldn't be perfect.

Others may choose differently.

I put them in a few years ago and I don't mess with them. Mine wouldn't be chipped at all if some moron hadn't decided he wanted a closer look at them and tried to pry one out with his fingernails.

Got me, love em! Had them for 6 months now, take them off when I wash the car, still perfect. If they do get messed up I will just order more.

Now you are going to make me go downstairs to the garage, uncover the sleeping Berlina Black S2000 and inspect the key covers that I installed a year ago to see if there are any chips. Don't see what would cause them to chip since I have not touched them since I put them in.

They're cheaper than I thought they would be

Yeah back in the day, the only vendors that sold them wanted $30 I think - js2k is a great sponsor here.

At least with my GPW, if I don't remove them when I wash the car, I start to get rings of dirt in the paint that has to be polished out. I just remove them when I wash the car, wash them by themselves, then replace them.
