Goodbye $printer Hello 2016 Transit

My 2016 is here and just waiting till I can catch a break from work to pick it up.
It was ordered on 9/21/2015.
It will be goodbye to the 2012 144 low roof $printer on Friday.
The first drive was good nice and quiet and smooth.
I did notice the STUPID key does not fold or anything just looks like a big D#&@ stick out like that.
Just waiting to jab me thru my pocket.
My salesman said all other car keys fold up, he showed his fob for the Fusion.
Already wondering how to get the Fusion/ folding key to work on the Transit.

Add a stick-on keyless entry pad or two and leave the key in the van.

Thanks,
Yes Ingot Silver.
I have been in two Sprinters since 2005.
All their white paint is pure junk.
I could not take a chance again on an inferior paint job.
I thought I read on here somewhere that Transit white was also weak.
True or not just went with Silver.

As for folding keys, you might check Amazon or eBay for one of those... usually it is a case that requires an existing remote and moving the PCB and chips from it to the folding one, but it is better than nothing.
