    I haven't tried this myself, but if I was going to go down this path, this is the one I would get!

    You've already inserted and turned the key. Then what's the point of the button?

    Spend your mod money elsewhere.

    I agree, that's why I think they're pointless, but the OP asked...

    Yes ... that was a nice find for the OP.

    Retrofits of devices or features like this that a car did not come with just seem like a waste of time and money imo. "Lambo doors" and turbo timers come to mind.

    While they seem kind of cool, I can wait for a future car I get to have the start / stop button. And if it doesn't have one that's OK too.

    Well, in his defense, most cars with push button start require you to insert the key. You don't have to turn it, but you still have to put it in. Some in the last few years have allowed you to keep the key in your pocket and just use an RF signal to "arm" the ignition.

    But I do agree with your sentiment.

    Ah ... I thought pretty much all of them did this.

    IMO push button starts are ridiculous. Putting a freaking key into a hole and turning it is about as simple as a task can get. I do think it's cool in a way but in reality it's just a gimmick.

    Plus your gauge cluster won't do it's opening ceremony, it'll just do it while starting up which is no fun.


    My advice would be to get gauges or nav or something instead.
