Wow, how did I miss this?

I guess I can replace the "ESP" switch with the FUNK switch. I figure the car's pretty funky with the ESP disabled! ;-)

It sure is. I am conflicted to sell you the one I bought from Superman or the new left sided one. FUNK switches are rare and I had never saw one for the left position until this one.

I've never heard of a left side one either, I assume it's originally from a RHD car.

Do they switch all the buttons on RHD cars?

I've noticed, over the years, that they do on symmetrical switches but not asymmetrical. I haven't noticed yet about the B5, haven't really looked into it.

Ken, I'll take whichever one you can part with. If you send me the LH one, I'll replace my "ESP" switch with it. If you send me the RH one, I'll replace my "taxi" switch (presently not connected) with it.

If I had a choice, I'd very mildly prefer the RH one.

Thanks! Either way, you're the king! :-D

Yeah, they do make LH and RH switches. Not sure if it corresponds to LHD and RHD, seeing as FUNK is german, and in germany all cars are LHD, or why there's 2 different ones.

That is what I am thinking. But they also have taxi switches that go next to the interior brightness and HID level knob.
