Even the tunnel

edit: as in the center stack looks to just change the angle and then the handbrake is on the same side, it didn’t move with the driver

Apologies if you've seen this before, but I don't spend too much time in your sub-forum (as you guys are all well behaved lol).

Anyway, saw this posted on an Australian S650 FB group........note the centre console :facepalm:

HAHA I guess the passenger gets to pull the drift break! Surely this is not how it is being sold as a RHD.

We saw pictures of a yellow splash S650 in the streets of Melbourne, but that was back in mid May.

Not loving the centre console. :frown:

How hard or expensive could it possibly be to fit a properly mirrored centre console? 🤔
Yeah, especially as they already did the dash (Required, I know). It is just a plastic mold change. Though they may also require a new mounting for the hand brake. Ford is saying that they went for a global market with the S650, looks like they half-a$$ed it for RHD.

Unfortunately, this is nothing new.

It will be really disappointing if our "all new" RHD S650s get the same old LHD layout.

If you're getting an auto it won't bother you, but for those of us getting a manual I hate it.

Oh no. That will be really bad for drift brake buyers

I wouldn’t buy it for this reason.

I'm surprised we'd even be getting the handle - I truly expected the electronic brake switch only.
No big surprises that they didn't mirror the centre console.
Likewise, The sanctimonious Nannies must have missed that - although they probably like the fact it is a Brake - which is their self-appointed mission to apply to all fun and critical personal expression in life.

Will be interesting to see if our vehicles are actually equiped with the strut tower brace and drift brake handle.

What else can Ford strip out of the US Premium variant to keep their costs down when supplying a foreign market that has a crap exchange rate?

It would not surprise me one iota if we get this:

Hope for the best.
Expect the worst.
