Default Keyless engine start?

Has anyone ever attempted to retrofit a keyless engine start? I was reading about the new A8 with this feature. I think this would be cool to be able to climb in and press a button and go!

I love my A4 but would like to make it unique!!

well first off you have to bypass a lot of circuoits and wires and the a4 isnt really wired for it but there are universal kits out there that you can install in any car..

I think it overrides the alarm settings and the car is not safe anymore. I was about to do it and I backed off.

i heard its about 100$ at Circuit City to install it, one of my friends had it in his BMW worked pretty good specially in winter time you dont have to get in the car just press a button and it cranks up and warms up and all that good stuff haha......damn we're getting lazy
