I would like to add some auxiliary switches to my dash panel but have them retain the OE look of the dash buttons. There are 2 blanks on my panel that I can use, but I need to know what kind of switch would be best.

For some background, for the first mod, I am planning on installing some super bright auxiliary backup lights for parking. These will also serve as a "EFF OFF" switch for bungholes in Los Angeles that love to drive around with their high beams on constant. [evilsmile][o_o]

I've been searching, but have not found anything for the C6 buttons. A funk button would be sweet for this job, but it doesn't exist in our flavor. I'm thinking the other switch will be left for turning my sub on/off when transporting the wife and kid.

I imagine that something like an 'ESP off' button can be repurposed if push comes to shove. The best would be a simple SPST switch with a blank face.

All suggestions welcome

Thanks for the replies.

I saw those switches. I think I will get the parking one and if I retrofit the front parking sensors, I will repurpose it back. Now to find one that will look half decent in my car. I think I will go for a genuine article as most of these switches have nasty scratched up finishes.

I'm going to keep thinking this one through and post back my mod if I go through with it.
