Red Start/Stop Button Installation

http://youtu.be/SI_EKLhgyRM

If anyone is having trouble installing their red start button, even though itís pretty straight forward, this YouTube video helped me a bit. Especially removing the oem button from the assembly.

Using a credit card to remove the button assembly from the dash worked great for me and presented no risk of scratching anything. Just use the credit card just like you would a small screwdriver or trim removal tool.

Nice video, but why do you want a red button?

Who cares if OP wants a red button...it's sporty.

Of all the distasteful things I see people do to their BMWs because they think they are "cool" - I wouldn't consider this one of those

And on the Acura MDX. The fastest suburban class kid hauler. RACE family vehicle.

Brushed Aluminum Red Start/Stop in standard equipment LOL.

The Porsche 991 doesn't even offer a red button. They still offer a dummy key in black plastic that you need to turn to start the car as a homage to Lemans.
