So much value
Prior to ordering this kit, I was sceptical about the quality compared to the price. But the price was also the factor that made me buy the kit, I thought to myself "heck, if its rubbish, I've lost next to nothing".
I was put to shame after receiving the kit, because the build quality is actually pretty good. It is a very sturdy case, both in regard to scratches as well as dents. Mixed up with several other keys and hand tools in my pockets, it still looks brand new.
I bought the kit, because the buttons on my original key was worn out. So I hoped that the button part of this kit, would fit with the original backside of the case, so I could keep the Toyota logo. Unfortunately this case is a bit oversized compared to the original case, so it was a no go. But the inside is perfectly matched with the original key. The locks for the PCB fits perfectly, and also the slot for the transponder chip. It felt like a very tight fit, putting the key blade into the case, I almost had to use tools.
Buttons feels good as well, though they are nowhere near the softness of the original ones, but I actually prefer a stiffer button, so that's okay.
I was a little discouraged, when I figured out that I had to solder on new buttons on the PCB (my old ones had broken - not sure if they could have been reused if not) but to my surprise, it was actually a really easy deal. I bought myself a cheap €6 25w soldering iron, which worked out like a charm. This was the first time soldering on PCB in my life.
The only thing that could be better in this kit, is the finish of the case near the middle/split of the 2 halves. The original case had a rubber gasket, sealing most moisture. This kit does not, and its not a 100% level/flat, so at the back (where the hinge is) there's a small gap where air/moisture could penetrate the key. I haven't measured, but I would say that the gap is about 0.2-0.4 mm.
