I've got the Merc setup G talks about. Once you are used to it it's great. It's only the same as any other control being in a different place. For instance the wash wipe on the Merc is a button you push in on the end of the left hand stalk. This is exactly the same as the horn on my Range Rover...

To balance out the wash wipe, the button on the end of the right hand stalk engages the parking brake. This too can cause some interesting moments until you are used to it.

Whilst this setup obviously causes the traditionalists some angst, it does mean I have more storage space in the centre console than I did in the whole of my Brera, including the boot.

I remember when this was a field of 156s.
