Red Start and M1/M2 buttons

Guys

Any recommendations on where to best buy the Red Start and M1/M2 buttons for 2017 M4 please?

I heard you can buy from EBay but concerned on what the quality would be like?

Also how difficult are they to replace?

Thanks in advance

By far the best quality are from IND, expensive though! I fitted their polar blue ones and they actually feel nicer than the originals. Not difficult but if you’re not confident removing an air bag and stripping a wheel down don’t try it!

They're all made in China. Got mine off AliExpress less than £4 delivered.
I've done a side by side comparison with genuine BMW start/stop button & it's identical.
Can't comment on the M buttons, don't have them, don't like them.

The Genuine BMW Red Start / Stop button gives you an extra 50bhp though.

The aftermarket ones, only give 25bhp and if you go for Blue then I think it's only 15

Having had eBay ones, IND ones aren’t the same, the fit and finish is above oem, M1 and M2 buttons feel much more positive, unlike the Chinese ones they’re metallic polar blue, not flat blue (in my case), all aren’t created equally!

It's dropped off my order history, seller no longer registered.
But just do a search, they're nearly all identical. At the time, I just bought the cheapest... Thought process was, if it turned out to be cr4p, it didn't matter. As it turned out though, excellent!
