Some people have asked me about it, and I had some trouble finding a good picture of it installed online so I figured I'd post a picture here for future searches.

It was under 200 (I know, :eek:) shipped from Chin Kwan.

The install was relatively easy, just plug and play. Youve just got to be able to flip things around in your head a little. The diagrams are all for the right hand drive altezza. The cable that connects it is _barely_ long enough to make it to the slot I put it in. The middle slot would be really hard without extending the wires.

And for those of you not familiar: the function of the big red button is obvious, but the little silver flip switch below it is basically a button kill switch. With that in the off position, the red button wont start the car. I suppose thats useful... :-?

that's the lazy man's way of turning on an engine. i don't think it's worth $200. pay me $200 and i'll turn the key for you everytime. :D

I too have one. For a standard installtion, yes you still need your key and turn it to IGN. But there is a way where you can totally by-pass the key and just press the button to start the engine. With that set-up, you definitely need the kill switch - just in case.

I'd do that, but i'm a paranoid bastard. The security risk is just too great.

you still need to turn the key so why not just turn it another notch and start the car? :-?

i guess it's all about the "wow" factor. :wink:
