Do these not cheapen the look of your car
All personal preference but no IMO they don’t if you get a decent quality one. I have one in mine and I’d say the quality is equal if not better than the original OEM black one.

A bit of fun for a couple of quid and a 30 fit. OP I’ll try and dig the link out and will PM you (although I do remember it being the last in stock at the time).

Another options is the ring around the start button.

I feel it's classier.

That's a nice colour that, I like it. I've gone for the red one for £5.

Now the blue I could live with but the red stands out a bit too much for my liking.

The blue button is nice.

The ring can also be had in other colours - blue, silver etc.

Aye - being a ‘blue’ I get that - this blue has a bit too much sparkle / metallic for my liking... still personally happy with my ‘red’ one... even though it’s red :oops:

I think red looks great with Coral Red interior.
Mine was also £5 on eBay. Very good quality for the price and took minutes to fit with included putty.
