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?

Did you unplug the battery to fit this or not?

Wasn't sure if Id get an error code unplugging the switch with the battery connected.

Cheers

Never disconnected the battery. Made sure the ignition was off though. 15 mins to complete. Looks great
