Push Button Start

Has anyone fitted a push button start switch to the dash?

I am looking to do it and wondered if it has been tackled before.

Looking also for the R170. I've seen a few Chinese kits out there for around $50-$75 but not sure if they would work well.

Almost did this to mine, but figured away around not doing it.

however, for my bastardized CLK55, I do, indeed have a push button start on it. just got a cheapo momentary push button from AutoZone, found a spot for it in the ash tray and ran 2 wires to the starter solenoid. I had to do this to get around some of the ignition and steering lock components that quit working.

One of my cars has push button and do not like it. Sometimes I push the button to shut it off and it just keeps on idling, have to look at the tach to be sure. With the R170, if the key is in my pocket, it is off and in park.
