I got bored and ordered one for just over £6, even though I didn't like the initial look of it. Free shipping too:

If you’re not sure on ‘Honda Civic’ red, then I have found a totally OEM alternative. The new G01 X3 has option of electroless nickel plate / silver button. I took the chance and ordered the complete switch. Swapped over the button. Works a treat and looks great.

May I ask where you sourced it please?

EDIT: I see now it's an OEM part. Do you happen to have the PN please?
