Re: move indicator switch to left hand side

Cars designed in japan had the indicators on the right hand side because it makes sense in a right hand drive car - the hand that is always on the steering wheel can operate indicators and lights. Rather than the hand which is sometimes used to change gear. When you get used to it you will find it much better. Unfortunately because there are more left hand drive cars in the world and manufacturers cut costs more they have adopted the more popular left hand sided indicator. I would stick with it on the right as previous cars of mine had this set up and it is actually very good when u get used to it

i agree with ya mate, i had a pajero...(shogun) that was like your scooby, it drove me mad for the 3 years. i never got used to it couse i drive lots of differant things all day in my job.... i looked at changing it and it looked complicated so i left it, when i started looking at scoobys i knew i needed a v5 so didnt bother with anythin older, i even passed on a cheeap r reg prodrive couse of the indys!
