Looks pretty good for the price. I'd be willing to pay a little more for something with a more interesting finish. Perhaps an aluminum instead of plastic button. With matte silver trim perhaps?

AlibabaExpress has'em for under $25, but from looking at the pics, I can't confirm if the inner mold clips are the same as the one I bought. I'd post the link, but who the Hell knows if that's bannable thing here these days or not.

red looks slightly tacky to me for the button (i even have coral red interior). i think the brushed AL would be nice.

The only links that you can't post are those to a company or source that you represent in some way.

Got mine this week, install was a breeze, matches my black and red theme perfectly.

No bleed through lighting in the button at all even testing it with an LED flashlight. Paint quality was good, fitment was perfect. Worth the $40 to me.

Thanks and good to know. Lost the link now, but it's an easy 'BMW red start button' search there.

Got my button from eBay today. Looks the same but was a reasonable $20. Probably same source is my guess. Glad I found this thread!

Doesn't look bad, but not worth the price. I went with this to match my estoril blue m-sport trim. If I don't like then I only wasted $2.50.

Yeah, this is a sigh of relief after paying $1300 for a FabSpeed HJS Catted DP - but it was worth it
