4 ashtray mounted switches

as some of you guys know i mod ashtrays to fit the 3 buttons.

i've figured out that if i remove the piece of metal on the left side of the ashtray i can put a 4th button in here. these would not shut off after closing the lid.

im charging 50 per ashtray with shipping included. i need atleast 3 people to commit before i start making these pieces. if you are interested, post or send me a PM.

sorry, i do not have a picture because i have not yet made one. however, they would look exactly like the ones ive previously made except there would be a fourth button and there would not be the little hole on the left side.

can you rig a button to turn off DSC, turn on SPORT MODE, and put my car into S6? all with just one button?

Pics would be in order, at least for the 3 button one that you have. Then I'm sure you can get three buyers, one of which might be me.

hey guys. i only have a picture of a white one i made for my car. yours would look the same except it would be in black. heres a pic..



one difference between this and what im making now is that the new ones are recessed more so the switches do not turn off when the ashtray lid is closed.

a 3 button one is 35 for the illuminated.
