Yeah the keys are, I'm not sure about their push-buttons if they have them, the last Porsche I was in you still had to put the keyfob into the slot on the left.

Sorry OT I know...

That's what I though from seeing LHD cars in movies etc.

I find it a PITA that in the UK (RHD markets) where your right hand (door side) was used to turning the ignition key in 99.9% of cars, now on the same makes of cars they moved starter buttons to the left side (centre console).

I still find myself looking / reaching for a button on the wrong side of the wheel.... this isn't helped by the fact the button in the M2 (and many others) is hidden by the wheel in the normal driving position.
