      I post too many times in too many threads about how I can't stand screens and nonphysical buttons. Instead, here's a thread that seeks to accomplish just the opposite.
      Does this freak you out? I wasn’t too excited at first but have actually grown quite used to it.

      I love the tactile way things move and click. Just reeks of quality, even down to a DX model Civic.

      Absolutely this. My Dad's beater CB7 that had definitely seen better days before becoming his, had some of the nicest feeling switchgear and materials. It just oozed attention to detail.

      The XV10 Camries I test drove a few years ago had a similar "expensive" feel, even down to the way the gear selector's action was silky smooth through the damped detents, although IMO the Honda was still superior.

      These days the new switchgear in the Accord feels very Audiesque in the way they have a short throw and a tactile/audible click. I hope it spreads to other models as their lineup gets redesigned.

      YES! I loved this about my XJ. Felt better than just pushing a button.

      I also like the cruise control mini stalk that Toyota used.

      thanks to the person who posted the MR2 switches. I completely forgot about those - I loved them. In fact, I loved the whole interior of my AW11.
