That’s some stick shift

This is one of the kinder things Jay Shoemaker said about a BMW 5-series sedan in The Truth About Cars:

Martians have stolen the 535i’s transmission lever and left behind a replica of their sex organs. Too bad the tactile sensations produced by this flimsy plastic lever lack any hint of sensuality (extra-terrestrial or otherwise).

I’d hate to have to figure out how to turn off the traction control.

    Maybe it’s just me, but considering how a stick shift is shaped, were I to start thinking it felt sexy – well, I’d be worried.
