I think there are three threads going on including one from IND. I think it's hit or miss on how members feel about them. I say let Ferrari have their red start button.

I have the blue IND buttons. Very cool when you notice them, but when yer not looking it blends in like the emblem on the steering wheel. Red is a little more obvious mod.

I got the blue stripe wheel and palladium silver interior, would look weird with red M and start button. Got no choice but to go blue!

Ordered blue earlier this week. Have the LCI trim around the start button and brushed aluminum interior. Hopefully it looks okay. Edit* didn't care for the blue w/ lci button. Swapped to pre-lci. Happy with the results. Posting for anyone else with aluminum trim.

I wanted to stay as subtle as one possibly could with a bright red button (lol) so I did just the M-Drive replacement to accent it a bit.

One of those you have to ask a question so you can find your own answer situations.
