    Here's some more exciting news for you. Americans drive on the right, all
    driving controls in cars for America are on the left.

    The volume knob is always nearest the driver.

    That is correct, unless you buy a Alpine always on the left.

    The other way out of this, is the Remote that comes with most of them..

    It seems that Parallel Importers are manly LH radios for the EU..

    My Pioneer has a volume control on the left, as do the last three head units
    I've bought in NZ. As usual "Tony" is talking through the wrong orifice.

    Agreed. I've just seen several new head units (Kenwood & Pioneer) with
    LH mounted volume controls (and they are supplied through the NZ agents
    rather than being grey market imports).

    Sounds like your 'tech' is as knowledgable as you are Roger. Try
    admitting that you might have been misled and apologise - it might
    regain you some respect and friends.

    Reminds me of the guy who came around and told me a painter had told
    him 30 seconds will remove paint if you leave it on for an hour.
    A quick test proved he is gullible.

    Typical. Woger will believe without question any low level so called
    'authority figure' be it a random technician or magazine review etc, but
    won't believe anyone in here no matter what their credentials are or
    experience is.

    Then I guess the only solution is to import only left hand drive

    No I work with this Tech and I know that he is Right, most here just do not

    I'm not talking about this guy specifically and I'm not making any
    assumption about whether he is right or not (I know bugger all about car
    stereos) - just noticing a general trend with all your disagreements here.
    You automatically assume every answer you get here is wrong no matter how
    much personal experience and factual evidence come with it, so if
    you hear something different elsewhere you make the mistake of
    automatically assuming the outside info is correct.
    No I would not like to "meat" him (use the dictionary). But I wouldn't
    have a problem stating to him your tendency to mishear or misread things -
    which was part of what I was commenting about after all.

    Your friend probably stated something to the effect of a general rule
    (nobody disagreed with that general rule), your less than precise grasp of
    english probably misinterpreted that to mean something more like a hard
    and fast rule which you then present as absolute FACTs, and you get pissed
    off when people produce counter examples.
