it has been more than a week since I contacted VagExpress, they answer me with a dropper, telling me only that it can be done but they have not yet answered telling me what to buy, I am also annoyed to ask again without receiving any response!SwissJetPilot said:@ chriscapon - Run a Google search for "Integrated Switch R8 Engine Start Stop Button" and you'll find there are a number of sources.
According to this website that sells them, there are several versions of the buttons available depending on the steering wheel. They also provide some DIY installation instructions.

I emailed Greg at HazzyDayz and asked if they could install the buttons shown in the advertisement. He confirmed they had recently completed a retrofit installation -
"Yes we can add these. We did a R8 last week with the same steering wheel as you have on your TT. It took about 5 hours to complete as we need to cut your steering wheel to modify it for the brackets, etc.
Then to note, the Start/Stop button only works to start the engine, they do not stop the engine. Basically these buttons operate a set on relays, so you can assign the buttons to any switch that operates via a push button switch. As long as you supply the current button set for your vehicle, we can carry out the installation for you at £475+VAT."
