I don't have the pic right now, but I do know what he's talking about. In fact, they mention it in a couple of the mag reviews. I would assume that the bump is moved to the left side for a right-hand-drive vehicle. I could be wrong though, and I probably am...
HERCULES thanks for reply if you read article on spotrs car international on page 5 just under picture of interior of rx8 near the steering wheel you will come across the section i am referring to in R.H.DRIVE cars the bump appears under R.H.D area underdriver.
This picture shows the bump a little, you can see in on the bottom of the trans. tunnel. It starts from the begining of that tunnel and goes 1/3 or so back.
Glad I'm driving on the left but if you think about it, I don't think they would have done that if it wasn't driveable or hindered the driving experiance very much.
