Start Engine Button

Guys has anyone in here tried to place a start engine button in our car ?
I just saw this in ebay.de and i thought it could be a nice touch, what do you think ?

Of course if you've seen anything similar feel free to post it here.

That is sweet. Even though it's hidden I'd be afraid of the wrong person noticing it's there. Some sort of radio frequency chip to activate it would be sweet.

Yes. Helios did it, it's a LOT of work and (apparently) was not completely successful. Read his thread here: Helios' Push-button Start/ Keyless Entry System

Other than that, been discussed many times, examples: http://www.solsticeforum.com/forum/f...button-58535/; Need brainstorming help: adding keyless start - Pontiac Solstice Forum

Wait, I don't think my key is chipped. Is it? '09 Redline. I'm pretty sure it's just a normal key.

Well only the 1st link says interesting things but for a specific company product.
So we don't have many choices ?

Pretty sure you're wrong!

huh, if they are chipped then it's a pretty small chip. I guess I'm used to keys being larger on the back end when they have a chip in them.

If you look at the first post of the first thread link I gave above, there's a photo of the broken-apart key and chip.

Just how large were you expecting a miniaturized chip to be?? We aren't talking about potato chips here and they come a lot smaller than the one shown in TS's post.

I guess I'm just an old codger, because I don't get the big deal about push button start.

I agree. I suppose I could see doing it as a curiosity or trying to pretend you were really driving another car that had it (like a Ferrari) if that were your bag and it was an easy task, but given that it apparently isn't easy, I can't see the point.

All my earlier cars came with pull or push start knobs, so maybe it just has no novelty for me.

My old MGs all have hand crank as a back up measure when your battery goes flat. Comes in handy for setting valves (if you remember that)

Especially if you still have to use the key to unlock the steering.
