    So, you are saying that we do this:

    1. Install this after market thingie and risk voiding warranty
    2. Insert the key and turn to MAR
    3. Depress this switch to start the car

    Why, oh, why :A :A

    Isn't is easier to just turn that key a few mm more?

    Exactly. This is where the whole "novelty" of a start-stop button simply collapses on itself. As it effectively increases the work in starting the car.

    Cheers.

  3. Its a big No-No for me..Nothing beats turning the big key to start.
    I have a push button start on my UNO but its only because there is some problem with ignition barrel.
    I ll get away with it as soon as i procure a new barrel

    It's just a marketing gimmick, started in Nissan Micra in India, to "provide an additional feature". Other manufacturers who didnt want to lose on sales because of this feature followed suit.
