Default Key ring/fob: Where to buy?

I've found a number of older threads (dating back to 2003/2004) showing key fobs like this one:



However, I can't seem to find anything like it still for sale. Does anyone know where to get one? Have checked eBay to no avail. I also kind of dig this one, but don't want to spend $20 having it shipped from the UK:

My dealer gave me two when we bought the Saab, however it has the dealer's name on it. Otherwise, how else would you get keys onto the remote?

I bought this guy from Saab Expressions. It's a real simple design with a rubber strap held together with two metal screw-on buttons. It says "Born from Jets" on the strap.



I don't attach the rest of my keys to my Saab key while driving because they scratch up the center console, so I wanted something where I can connect and disconnect them easily.

and went back to a very old leather ring ....

the layout on the saab for the key, meant it was making a lot of noise and scratching

Arrgh! They have the EXACT CAR I WANTED!!! Silver 2007 6-speed with moonroof, cold weather and premium audio! My dealer said he searched the nation and there weren't any! I ended up paying almost as much for a 6-speed with just cold weather.

Getting the top one is easy, you just have to buy your car through the European Delivery Program and they give you one for free! When I got mine they told me that is the only way to get one. They may have been lying to make it more impressive, but I haven't seen them anywhere else.

I got one of those on top with my EDP as well. They are not very practical though and I doubt the rubber band will hold up over time. The one from monsaab seems like better and stronger design.

I was able to get a key fob from Saab Frankfurt on the European delivery program this year. I unfortunately had to see a dealer in Berlin so I also conned one from them. Nice memento. I was recently at a Saab show where I showed my key and they gave me another key fob. The truth is you can use only one key ring at a time. Of course my dealer gave me 2 when I picked up my car when it was setup back in the States.
