    yes I did watch the video now and I understand what you are saying.. Your solution is without a doubt the best one. But you're not going to sell thousands of them, and the development costs will be te same. i'm not saying that you will be overpricing them, but I suspect that it will be one expensive set of buttons..

    fingers crossed :)

    I can tell you that I believe most will be pleasantly suprised at the cost. Right now, the options are to purchase a replacement rubber button that is not accurate and will fail again or get an entire console assembly from Ferrari north of $2000.00

    Our solution will be considerably less than $1000.00 - probably just a little more that the $200 each rubber button option from ebay and others.

    Yes, it many ways it is a labor of love. We enjoy solving problems and providing the most factory correct solutions available worldwide :)

    i've got a lot of respect for your work. Things like these though make me wonder if I should ever buy another Ferrari. Making these sticky mistakes is one thing, selling it at an enormous price is another and then not fixing this in later models just is plain criminal..

    Here is a video demonstrating the installation. Please pardon the resolution - we did not have the camera set to hi-def when creating the video.

    If they are like the 8C, they are rubber and will just fail again.

    And, the graphics are wrong - they have 1, R, N, and A/M

    The R is different than the 430 / 599 R and they don't have an AUTO or LC

    We are currently able to retrofit switch assemblies with hard plastic buttons which will never desintigrate or get sticky again. Within a few weeks our complete, new turkey switches and harnesses will be available.

    Have 2007 599. Need the Auto button alone. Can it fit on the OEM harness or do I need to purchase the whole bundle?
