Sports automatic backwards

Hey guys,

Iím not sure that all cars are like this. But a couple of cars that I drive when you shift back it goes down gears and shift forward it goes up gears. Which to me is backwards and against your momentum when driving. I engage it when the road gets twisty and quickly put it back in drive, cause my brain canít sort it out.

My question is, can you reverse this?

Cheers.

my new y62 patrol is like that. its not a sports car so i dont play with the gears. its a v8 with a loud exhaust so i change it manually sometimes for the sweet noises (it blips the throttle on down shift) and when going down a long steep hill. it took a while to get used to but im used to it now.

Usually doesn't take too long to figure out with different cars.

My trouble is I leave it in Manual mode and then stop at the lights and forget.

The two cars I have are opposite but they both have paddles so no need to stuff around with the shifters usually.

The case for shift direction can be argued both ways and it would be nice if manufacturer's just standardised either way.

The race boxes they are trying to emulate are all pull back for up, forward for down. Bikes are all up/back for up and to fly a plane you push forward for down.

There really is only one way to do it right, the rest are just retarded and counter intuitive.
