If i were you (if you dont use the cig lighter) i would have put it in the spot of the cig lighter for a cleaner and more factory look but still looks good they way u have done it.

Personally i added another lighter plug in behind the dash for my phone charger, and the cable actually comes in from that pocket so not used, rather than haveing the big a** chargr thing hanging out the dash.

but I gotta admit that looks damn well done how you've done it, but have you got that carbon stuff anywhere else?

I can't help but ask this question,

What is it with these start buttons? Why do people bother? It seems stupid that you'll now have to turn the key to the on position, then press another button to start it, and when it looks out of place, what on earth is the point?

Looks, But i see a good reason to do IF there ignition module is dodgy or ignition barrel is f**k etc or as a security measure (but not if is outin open)

othere then that the wank factor, i am thinking about gettin one for me AU but i am sure i could fudge up something from bits n peices from d**k smiths

gotta luv the wank factor ..
i bothered with it as its something different .i dont drive my car much ,so i dont care about turning a key then pushing a button to start the thing .
& it gave me something to do for the last week or so instead of sitting on my fat a$$ .. :)
i know its not for everyone ,alot things people do to there cars are like that .
but for the peeps who do like it ,might give them ideas to do simalar.. :wink:

Haha, never really thought about it but I guess your right, like adding wodgrain trims around the place etc. serve no purpose just look nice etc. :lol:

Although the buttons not for me, to slack for that, hidden would be nice admittedly, but then again only good against people who don't know the car, which isn't my concern.
