    How long does it take?

    How long does it take to get used to inserting the ignition key with your left hand? Four months and counting for me and it still takes a conscious effort to put the darn key in my left hand once in the car. Luckily, though, I haven't tried to insert the key into the dash yet.

    Oh, and I still catch myself at times reaching with my right hand to turn off the ignition.

    Love the car, though!

    Over 20 years and still counting ..... Every time I get back into the Porsche after driving my wife's car for a coupla days, or after driving a rental car.

    Re: How long does it take?

    4 years and counting!!!!! espcially tough when its not your everyday car.

    You know the nostalgia behinds this? In ye olden days car races began with everyone running to their cars. Was quicker to start it up not having to reach to the other side of the steering wheel to inside the key.

    About TWICE

    Then it's wierd when you get into a regular car !!!

    Re: About TWICE

    I'm used to it

    Re: How long does it take?

    Fortunately it's on the right on a RHD car!!
