What you're thinking is a start button is more then likely the instrumeny panel light intensity level adjuster. Also all the images on the Canadian site I believe are of the 2002 Solstice Concept. Which is a muchhhhhh different car internally then the production one.Danno said:I've noticed that a few of the pics (on the Canadian GM site) show a start button. Anyone heard if this will be on the production model? Personally I think it would be a great touch...
:agree: to a point. In anything other than a true Shelby Cobra its just a game for marketing. Even NASCAR uses toggles, not PB's, better reliability, you know by quick glance - ON/OFF. In a $50000 luxury car that is so quiet you can't hear the engine see how long the starter lasts when drivers keep trying to start the car they think stalled :lol:solsticeman said:Start buttons are for wusses!
good grief, that explains the pictures the dealer showed me today (Canada). He was showing me the 2002 concept pictures and telling me that these are production version pictures - again, typical. The dealer did, however, give me a brochure as well. It shows, among other GM vehicles the Solstice.mceb said:2002 Concept.
:agree: A starter button would be fun for about a week and a half, then a PITA. This car is efficient. It has everything needed and little else than necessary, for a performance roadster. Why add silly gimmicks?solsticeman said:Start buttons are for wusses! That's almost 64 grams of extra wiring and another thing to go wrong ('cause you still need a KEY!!!!)
Honda S2000's have start buttons. Infuriating!!! Put the key in, turn it on. THEN look at the freakin' LEFT SIDE of the steering wheel to start the car?!?!?!? BAD. Useless. More form over function.
IIRC, the boxter does too - I'm not much of a porsche fan, never have been.
