    I've never seen mine work and there's no indication from the inside of the car that they are functioning. There is mention of them in the owner's manual as well. Hmmmm......I guess I'll have to test it today. If they work, I guess I will have Internet egg on my face. Oh well, it wouldn't be the first time.

    To be fair Bob, I've never investigated the HL washers either. Never tried to use them ...

    I forget which car had it, but I want to say the Mercedes Mclaren SLR. The start-up button was your typical red circle button, but it was on the gearshift, and you had to lift a a cover to access it. Thats something I would have talked about as a 15 yr old, if the 'SLR' was out then.

    Yeah, section 5-7 talks about them... couple notes: Headlights have to be on and it only works every 5th time you wash your windshield.

    It was indeed on the Mercedes SLR. And call me 15 if you have to, but I would buy that mod for our car in a heartbeat.

    Re: C6 push button start in the V's

    I went from the CTS-V back to a Vette and that fake key is something I miss. Like to turn the key to start the car (even if it's fake), actually I would prefer to have a regular key in either of these cars. I don't like these FOBS. Nice for the keyless entry, but a waste for the keyless ignition. Anyone ever get "no fob detected?" Never get that message with a simple key.

    I know people that have time and again got out of their car and left the engine running all day. Not really an issue for a V or vette. You aren't going mistake an engine that is running on one of these cars. But on a sedate V6, you can't always tell they are running.

    I actually prefer the fake key over the push button on the Vette. The key is much easier to operate as it works like a normal car, especially for people that don't drive keyless ignition cars daily.

    I like the button on my gf's vette, and I wish the V had that.
