Ok, took it out of my pocket and bit it. Teeth tell me it is a metal for sure. The blue part is plastic, but I don't think the silver part is titanium. Why would they use a metal like titanium in a key? Doesn't make sense to me.Sti_749 said:Definitely not plastic.. you can't scratch it with your nail ... Heavy enough to be some kinda metal ... :tongue:
What about the weight of the STi key versus the ZX key?? For being Ti, it seems a little heavy... The Oakley titanium sunglasses are very light for that matters...TRM said:it looks to be three components:
the top part with the STi logo is metal, perhaps Ti with a very good finish.
the tumbler section actually seems to be different than the metal of the top piece.
the blue part is plastic of course and looks to be co-injection molded to the logo and tumbler pieces. in fact it may be assembled in the mold through the molding of the plastic.
for comparison is my 10 year old Ti 300ZX key ($80.00). it's of a different finish of course, but it looks exactly like the proper color of most Ti components i've come across.
the metal top piece of the STi key is much nicer so i'm not sure if it's Ti or if you can get such a good finish on Ti and have it stay nice.
one things for sure - it's a cool key!
good point. my post is speculation regarding materials of course.Sti_749 said:What about the weight of the STi key versus the ZX key?? For being Ti, it seems a little heavy... The Oakley titanium sunglasses are very light for that matters...
