    Stumbled upon this electronic shift for us Prius v owners on Rakuten. Looks to be a more revised look on the popular electronic shift buttons. Despite it being made for RHD, being positioned on a LHD vehicle, it would be more natural to push D with your right index/middle finger and R or N with your thumb.

    Downside is we'd have to drill a hole in the cup holder for a clean install. Also that plastic piece that would cover up the original shift is made for RHD. But I wonder if it would fit perfectly, if rotated 180 degrees...

    Also from the same manufacturer but the older model

    While it looks neat, I wouldn't be interested in it for the following reasons:

    1. It uses up my favorite cup holder, which is also Mitzy's (@PompomMitzy on Facebook) water cup holder more importantly.

    2. I remember a friend of mine during my young teen years who thought it was funny to switch my gears for me from drive to reverse in my car. Not appreciated nor wise dude. Needless to say, he only did that once.

    3. That takes up more space than how it currently is on my USA version.

    4. I would personally want to be able store things in it, too, since it reseanables a smokeless ashtray. I don't smoke, so it's storage.

    Just my 2 cents worth, but neat find for those that perfer that style.

    SM-N910V ?
