On the Start/Stop button is the word "ENGINE" and on both 'N's, the lower part of the N has comeoff. It came off one of the N's to start with, then one day when starting the car, the other N came off, imbedding itself in my thumb and drew blood! The metal lettering on the button flaked off.

It's not so noticable as both the lower bits of N's are now missing, so its symmetrical. Not sure I want the center console removed and potentially damaged at the dealer to replace the button, but this isn't Audi quality. I question which letter is going to flake of next.

Have I been unlucky or are your eNgiNe letters flakey to?

Hate to say this, but if that is really a common problem then any spare parts they might add would probably have the same flaw...

It might be best to ask Audi if they know of this problem and have released new parts without the flaw before letting a maintenance shop tear the car open for this (just so that it can happen again soon)?

Its strange how the lettering is coming off as my stop/start button has the lettering engraved into the button.

Anyone thing about putting a laminate or protectant shield on the button
No. The chances of it happening on your button is remote and because the lettering is engraved (and then backlit) any shield/covering on it will be obvious.
