    Default [2014-2018 BM/BN] Getting rid of the cheap looking Engine Start button

    Ever noticed that of all the nice shiny interior parts in the 3rd gen Mazda3, the "Engine Start" button looks pretty cheap?


    Well, it turns out there's an official "accessory" upgrade in Japan to fix this issue-- simply buy a 3rd gen Mazda6 button!


    The silver trim ring in the Mazda6 button is slightly taller, which means after installing, it doesn't sit as flush as the stock button.


    But it looks great anyway!


    Note: This mod will also work for the CX-3 and 3rd gen Mazda2/2016 Toyota Yaris
    2005 Mazda3 SP23 hatchback (auto)
    2016 Mazda3 Sport GT (auto)

    Looks pretty cool - you're right, much better than the stock starter. How hard is it to install, what was the process?

    just pull the gauge cluster hood off, and you'll be able to get to the button afterwards.. it's all clipped on... start from the top and work your way down
