I've just been to see our new MCS which arrived today and wondered where the overhead clock had gone. Anyone know :confused: ?

I have to say I find the new clock position no problem at all really :)
Me too! I actually prefer it over the old one that was way up on the roof. I find it awkward to have to look up at the roof while driving, but very easy to glance down at my gauges. To each his own I guess. :D

Noticed that too. Got used to looking up for the clock . . . just have to get used to looking down at the speedo. I do like the fact that they added the reading lights as they are much easier than reaching behind and up for the dome lamp.

It's a shame you have to chose between the trip meter and the clock, as I use both quite frequently, found it very irritating. Change for change sake, the old position was easy and quick to glance at, clutter free. It's a shame they could not have worked to integrate the clock, new lights and all in a new centre piece up top.

I might be misreading this but the clock and trip meter are both there if you push the button on the speedo.

Personally I'd rather have the clock showing all the time than the trip counter. I think it looks tacky with the trip counter showing all the time, and much classier with the clock. Don't get me wrong, I use the trip counter all the time, but it doesn't mean I need to look at the trip counter all the time.

In the end, a nice clock/map light combo would've looked classier than what is up there in the '05s now. The lights are useful, just not very good looking IMO.
