Red-Beard, What is it like driving with that shift pattern. Switching from normal five speeds to the older Porsche and 914 pattern with 1st to the left and down is enough of a change to sometimes trick me, like getting 3rd when I want 2nd, but I can't imagine a totally reversed pattern.

Another weird arrangement must be learning to shift with your left hand when driving a right hand drive car, i.e. British or Japenese. I lived in Europe and drove in England several times, but always with a left hand drive car on the wrong side of the road.
