    Nath, Don't know about the engine start, but thanks for spotting the link. I am currently using a type pressure check button as my garage door opener switch, so have just ordered one with the proper garage logo one. Nice one!!

    My BM at the moment is push button start. I thought it was a great idea when I bought it... OOOOHHH PUSH BUTTON START!!!


    Now Ive had it a while, I know its just made the process of me starting the car a 2 step process instead of 1. Its still nice sometimes to tap a button instead of the old school method, but I'll not miss it.

    Geoff, I have the garage door switch from this chap. It looks completely OEM. The items in that auction are for blank covers only, they can be made into switch covers, but you have to ask. Good luck!!

    Would that not invalidate the warranty?

    I was just wondering guys thats all. It's nice to have all the buttons filled up with the RNS-E. Can u retrofit the tyre pressure monitoring? Is it worth it? Does it work with 19"s, cheers guys.

    But I though the car you have on order was "fully-loaded".

    Yes

    Depends on your point of view, yes in my case.

    Don't see why not as it uses the rotational speed of each wheel taken from the ABS sensors.

    Thanks for that John - I hadn't realised that. I have just emailed to confirm that I want a switch cover not a blank cover.
