Here's a link:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Carbon-Fiber...3/272795601816

It fit well. Only note is that I used the sanding part of my nail cutter to sand down a little imperfection of the ring. The plastic has a little bit stick out. Fair game for rando eBay parts at this price. I'm happy overall, the fake CF could look better but it's not distracting.

When you get the ring from eBay or wherever you order it from, scrape off the existing rubbery stuff carefully and then use the primer that comes in the packet.
That way your aluminum ring won't fall off when the rubber deteriorates.

Do you have to take the button out and completely apart to install the aluminum ring?

No, you can use a plastic thing to slowly scrape off the black pealing parts and apply the ring directly on it. But I chose to peal off the black rubbery stuff completely then respray the inside of the ring black. Leaving the front face bare white plastic and applying the metal ring on top. I wanted to do a clean job of applying it.

Removing the button is easy, use a plastic pry tool and slowly pry the trim forward, it will give you enough room to push in the little clips and pull the button out.

Got my aluminum one from China...very nice for $3.47, took about a month to get. I may never use it but have it in case. Mine has some kind of double stickum tape or very thin glue with a plastic strip to pull off on the back, no primer or glue.

Here is mine, painted with gloss black UV nail polish by my girlfriend The 3D effect is great and the paint seems very solid, so hopefully it will last longer than the OEM.

Got a start button from ECS, and it came with the 320si etched on the bottom. Looking at real oem it does show that as an option. lol.

What gives?

Yup! Shipping was faster than usual when getting it straight from China.

I found that carbon piece too tacky, I wished they made it all carbon minus the stripes. Then that would be perfect.

Pretty good, when I opened up the box you could sort of tell that it's like spray painted plastic, but it definitely doesn't look bad. Feels the same to me.
