The knob on my 1989 900 Turbo spins quite freely, so I never know which way it will face when I look down at it. It's quite novel. Look on the bright side - if it is upside down, it's bound to put off some car stealing scum who, after finally figuring out where the ignition key lock actually is to shove his screwdriver into but then, can't figure out how to drive it backwards :) Regards, Paul
