Question New GC owner

After a 11 year absence and numerous other cars, today I traded my 2010 Dodge Challenger in for a 2012 GC. The Challenger was great but after a while, I really felt heavy and so old....
So, I picked up a new GC today. I went for a very basic Laredo, not many options so I can save some money and do my own modifications.
My first project if to convert the key to a push button start. Any suggestions?
My next projects will be some cosmetic improvements but I need to conserve my money for a while...
Thoughts?

The dealer should of given you the push button upon sale. It's standard equipment as far as I know. Ours had the key at first but when we picked it up they popped the button in. Yes it just pops in.

I have to laugh at what you posted about the Challenger. We also had a Challenger RT for a short period of time. The car was great at first but then just felt cumbersome and way to big even for a muscle car. Have to say I like the GC much better.

I will have to check with the dealer this weekend. As it is something extra, I am sure there will be a cost involved but I am Ok as long as it is reasonable.

I agree 100% I live around Chicago and it was a pain riding the clutch every time I hit traffic on the Stevenson.
