I've never looked at car interiors like a normal person. I'm an engineer so I want access to things and I don't care much about shapes, patterns, or materials. I am more impressed by intuitively placed buttons than fancy fake wood or carbon fiber. My STi also has lots of neat gismos and switches which are infinitely more interesting interior pieces to me than a LCD readout for my air conditioner.
I saw that rising illuminated gear changer in the Jag they came out with and my reaction was "what does it do when it's down? Nothing? Why does it drop then?"
