Another DIY Friday here at MotoringFile. This week we’re featuring a pretty slick piece of kit that mimics the newer BMW and the upcoming MINI systems that use a button to start/stop the engine. It makes a little less sense in the current MINI with the standard key system, but anytime you can add a big round button that says “start”, we say go for it.

While we can’t guarantee our US readers will be easily get their hands on this kit, we do guarantee, you’ll at least know how to install it if you do.
