Just install a "false" button that actually delivers a mild electric shock.

Should help you learn pretty fast

As i work in a garage i'm always hopping into customers cars, and i nearly always have to think before starting the car. After i've travelled home from work at the end of the day, and going for the non existent keys in the column though.... no excuse haha

The button looks cool and it's funny to see non-Hondamechanics struggle how to start it. I'll miss the button on my next car.

I have been driving a different car in London this week, came home this afternoon, got into civic, turned key and wondered why it would not start, then remembered the start button, and that's just 3 days

Not unique to the 9G but it's like being a pilot.

Whilst my work colleague jumps in his Focus, turns the key and drives off I tend to put on the seat belt before turning the key or I get 'nagged'. Wait for the SatNav 'nag' and acknowledge that, then set my destination on the map to get the traffic reports.

Then it's all clear for takeoff using runway M25 (western section)
