I don't know who might be interested but it looks nice and it works as a back up for my controller.

They look worse in person, but at 10 bucks it's nice to add a little red to the elite controller.

Nice find, OP. I may pick this up despite the fact that my right shoulder button broke on my Elite. Btw does anybody know of a reputable place that fixes elite controllers?

I've been using the halo ones for a few months and prefer the feel of the curved D pad and domed analog stick. The only thing I've not preferred over stock is the material of the sticks is a little softer and wears quicker than the stock version

Same boat here. I just went on ebay and ordered a replacement bumper piece as the bumpers are connected on the newer controllers. It came with the tools necessary to get into the controller and it was surprisingly easy to do. Just do a search on ebay i paid 5 bux.

I don't have an Elite controller yet but I might go ahead and grab one of these for the future.
I'm pretty sure I remember MS showing off a Gears or Forza promotional D-Pad shortly after the Elite was unveiled and I was disappointed at that time that something like that wasn't going to come to retail. Here's hoping more customization option come out down the line. They abandoned 360 faceplates pretty quickly though, so probably not.

I've got two elite controllers.  Just ordered one set, wondering if I shouldn't order another at this price.

Broke down.  Not getting them at this price would be silly.

It's not too hard to fix it. I had the same problem. It uses the same parts as the x1 controller w 3.5mm headphone jack. You can buy a broken controller and steal the parts or get some Chinese ones that usually come with the tools you will need.

Also, depending on how it broke, sometimes you can fix shoulder buttons with a dab of glue.

Thanks OP, in for one at this price! I saw these at my local BB but didn't think about it at 30 bucks. This will look nice against the matte black finish on the elite controller.
