I Like Traffic Lights !!!
It's perfect where it is, 20 minutes after you buy it you will be in love with the location of the speedo. I was unsure if I'd like it or not but now I wish all my cars were that way. I also think they do it that way because it's easier to change the location where the column goes depending on which country it goes to (I.E. England, North America and such). That way it saves on cost for us and the company.
