I got mine yesterday, and am excited. Will install next week when I get home from a trip. But the finish-- while not perfect-- looks good enough, and a huge improvement. Very happy.

I actually have two hvac control units. Once I receive the new ones, I'll post a comparison of the plasti-dip vs clima-repair.
Im sure your gonna like them more when you see them with your own eyes

well a picture posted on facebook rennlist got these replies below...... not looking good. Hoping better in person. Willing to give them benefit of the doubt as my order is already in but man they look rough... see comments below.


They look kinda rough in pics

Before the replacement buttons were available, I purchased a repair kit from ClimeRepair which was basically two office grade Avery stickers for $38. Fraudulent! Beware!

Those stickers were trash.

Wow, those look scary!


Yeah, they look like ****.

That is ridiculous **** product for the money they want. I cannot believe these people are getting any orders for that price.

Looks rough to me?

Yeah this looks rough from the picture

Wow!! I guess I'll cancel my order tomorrow.👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻

Wow it looks like it's made of wood 😂

I think my OEM Sharpie fix looks better!

Wow I just ordered and crap I need to cancel

Touch up with a black marker pen

Guys I can't understand your comments, maybe it's the close up or the lights but it look good enough in real life! 😂

Was going to buy a set of these, glad I didn't quality looks like absolute dog ****!!

Yikes!! Might have better luck making your own with a block of plastic and a chisel

Wow.. $99. Horrible horrible quality

For some reason there is a bunch of bad comments on a facebook group (all of them coming from non-buyers... suspect?)

In the other hand, I saw possitive feedback from a few customers (apart from me LOL )

I received my confirmation email today that they shipped.

For me, I was disappointed in the quality based on the pictures I saw. They looked at least equivalent (or so) to what sticky no more offers.

The pics clima control posted on their web site made the buttons look almost smooth, similar to the other buttons on the control unit. This was really the look I was hoping for.

Again, I'll reserve judgement until I receive them. But most certainly it looks better than the peeling buttons, but not much better than my $2 plasti-dip repair.

they look good enough. once installed i don't think anyone will notice them.... they are in a low spot and are just climate control buttons.

with that said i can see why ppl are expecting more for 99 usd.

also if the lights work on the temp and fan icons at night that's a big improvement over my current white globa.

I ordered yesterday. My current ones look so crappy I'm willing to risk the $99.
