    What is wrong with all you crazy people????
    I honestly can't fathom why you would want to be mashing those buttons while turning the key, further weakening the cheap stick on roundel and risking it falling off even sooner and wearing out the markings on the key!

    I guess t.er, Will, and myself are the only sane people here!

    I am thoroughly convinced that if I donít have the buttons facing me when I start the engine, the car will explode. Donít @ me.

    well I voted for more minerals, and we're in 2nd place in the voting... This is not one of my many "Rain Man" compulsions

    I'm an excellent driver........

    No real opinion either, but I think the slight majority of the time the buttons face me.
