US base models have no start/stop button in the middle, but they still have the spot for it there, with the ring around it. To be honest, it annoys the **** out of me having that pretty little button there when it has no purpose. I mean, it could at least light up when the lights are on, and that'd make me happy. SO, we must fix it ourselves my friends.. Has anyone installed any custom mods on it? To make it light up, look better, have a purpose, etc, anything at all? I was looking into making the ring around it light up red, but how hard would that be? It'd be really nice if someone would create a replacement part for it that also made the Veloster writing in the middle to light up..
