    I've never seen one like this. Came with a CPO 2013 P85 just purchased by a friend of mine.

    Aside from the James Bond Ejection Feature, it's an early fob that lost it's too flimsy cover that made it look like ours. They make them better these days...Like the car.;)

    One of the fobs for my 2013 MS looks like that. The fob has a thin circular sticker that goes over that button. When that little sticker falls off, you see the actual button in the fob. I have a fob cover over mine that actually ended up taking off the sticker.

    I like it!

    I prefer clear markings of where all those hidden buttons are.

    I am still having problem of finding fob hidden buttons after 5 years :)

    That's what they look like when the centre has worn out. It's actually more convenient that way.
