Default Looking for Premium Start/Stop Switch

Just found a MMI control panel with this switch on it.

I like!

I havent used finger print yet anyway, besides it looks grotty compared with this tidy beauty.

Not going to buy if it costs $400, dont want to spend much more than $100 maybe more if it's good to go.

Anyone want to swap finger for premium or has one to off-load or knows where to get on the cheap??

Cheers again Boys![IMG][/IMG]

Here is a link to Audi USA. it's Item #9 in the picture. Its about $100. I'm not sure if you can make it work,( going from a "finger print" to "premium") because I have seen picture of both and it seem they are mounted differently. I'm not a 100% sure on that, but if you can please let us know.

It's not premium, it's used in the 2008 and up. I put it in my 2005 A8 when my original one went bad and it makes the MMI look much nicer. $100 is about the correct price for this part. BTW I have one of these for a Right Hand Drive vehicle (not US) available if anyone needs it.

My 07 does not have this style.

Maybe a 2008 look.

It's on 08's and up. Not 07 in the U.S.

You could always flip a bottle cap upside down write engine start, and glue it on top of your existing push button

All for the cost of a beer...

Does the start come with the off button and is this an easy install?
