    If you need the lighter socket, there's also the Zerosports push button starter which mounts in the dash next to the cruise control switch, it supposedly has a harness that plugs right into the factory wiring, install takes about 5 minutes. About $900.00, I think they have them at Vivid racing....Check the car parts review forum over at i-club for details...

    You can buy the actual button used in the s2000 from hparts.com for $35.

    So you still have to put the key in the ignition and turn it halfway?

    Then press the starter button?

    Yeah I think you have to turn it to ON and then push in the button. So it does not add any convenience, it actually makes it harded to start the car....but damn isnt it cool?

    yeah but yuo can still start the car by turning the key all the way also. u don't have to use the button all the time. it's just a cool int mod that adds some character to the car. but unless you some how mess up the install and cut the ignition (or do it on purpose) from the key switch you don't have to use the button all the time. and it lights up too. hehe

    You do have to put the key in and turn it to the ignition position before you press the button to start the car.
    If it was wired through the push button switch only, any bozo could get in the car to start it, and you'd have to keep your finger pressed on the button all the time, just to keep the ignition on and the car running!

    The key provides security for the car and the 12V to all the systems
    The button starts the car........

    yeah that's what i just said. but when u use the button u just turn the car on and push the button for ignition. or u can turn the car on the regular way. i was stating that unless you screw something up or find a way to cut the key switch ignition, u can still start the car with just the key and not always have to use the button.

    am i wrong? i thought that yuo could still start the car without using the button and just using the key. u just had to turn the key to where the car would run and then push the ignitions button to start that way. ???? please correct me if i'm wrong.

    I guess you could wire them both together, but why have both, as the push button is there to replace the function of turning the key all the way to the start position....I wouldn't worry about the push button failing, as ,at least the one I have, is a very heavy duty switch, and the button doesn't take the high amperage of the starter current anyway, the starer relay does.....I've personally had no issues with mine, it works great, looks good, and I think it's pretty cool......

    SlicksterV...that's sweeeet

    Hey I love that look, especially when lit up. It makes the center panel different from all the rest. I like the extra gauges too, but the whole set-up might have a difficult time finding a home on the WRX (I'd hate to part ways w/ my stereo). I can't imagine where I'd put that.

    For curiousity sake, can you post cost and difficulty of the install?

    I'm all for making the driving experience unique, performance -wise and coolness-wise (but not so much into looking too different on the exterior).

    There are instructions of how to install the BRB for Miata.
    Here is one.
    http://www.angelfire.com/mac/brb/brbindex.html
    Cost is about $50. $30 for the button, $3 for the relay, the rest is for wire, connectors & misc parts.
    It is actually pretty easy to do. You just have to figure out the wiring for the WRX & you can use the same instruction.
