Does anyone else hold their knob for comfort?

I mean I know it's automatic and it does it's own thing but rather than having two hands on the steering wheel I can't help but hold on to my knob.

It's just there sticking upright as I drive.

A couple of times it's caused me to go into manual mode if I hold it too tight round a bend! :eek:

Some knobs you might want to hold. About Β£60 each. The boss wouldn't let me buy one! πŸ˜₯ IMAG4510_1.jpg

I just get the missus to hold on to mine. They have their uses you know:p

Nice knob. What's that stick on thing with the red light on it and what's that green light bottom right of picture. Always curious when someone has got something I haven't.πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ™‚
I believe the red light thing is something to do with the toll card reader in the glove box.
And I think the green light is a handbrake bypass switch.... it's a bit odd though, I can watch the TV (static) and access vtr mode while driving, but can't view the DVD player in the glove box.
Anyone have any ideas? I'll be putting in a double din soon, so haven't been too concerned about it.

Ah, I see. I do have an extra box in the little compartment under the drivers seat, which I believe is some kind of digital TV tuner, so that does make sense.
