I've read here and now see the logic in the key between the seats. For example, when you get in the car, where does your right (for US) hand fall naturally? Between the front seats. Have you ever fumbled in the dark for the steering column mounted ignition, reaching awkwardly around the wheel and poking repeatedly on a cold winter night. Or when the cops are on your tail? :) Doesn't happen in a Saab. Plus, the key is next the the shift lever and hand-brake. All in one convenient location. Now, if I would only stop spilling things on the window switches mounted behind the ingnition. Beer is the worst for gumming them up! -jw -- 1984 900 S hatchback, 137K mi. Rhode Island
