If you can post a picture of this 'bump' maybe I can get a better idea.

I'm not entirely sure what you're talkin about.

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...

pic of underside

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.
