super simple, but I LOVE the way old Honda switchgear feels, up through about 2005 or so
I love the tactile way things move and click. Just reeks of quality, even down to a DX model Civic.

turn signal stalk in my 94 Caprice takes a lot of force to activate and makes a loud, unpleasant noise that makes you think it's going to break whenever you use it. not a good feel!
the starter pedal in the '55 Chevy takes a ton of pressure to engage and makes you feel like you're starting up some industrial grade machinery and not some consumer appliance.
My old BMW had excellent turn signals though. The handle was plastic, but stalk itself was metal. This was also true of the wiper and the cruise controls stalks.

When the control module in my Lexus crapped out I had no access to radio or AC/Heat controls. No redundancy meant one failure cascaded to multiple systems so stupid.
As to what is my favorite switch, I think the Mercedes cruise control stalk (not sure if new ones are like this with distronic) is hands down the best cruise control switch 3var (much better than the rocker switch placed on the steering wheels of most cars).
Germans are white people. Look up #84 on the list of things white people like: Gear. Lots of Gear. We even have gear farkles over here. -Atomicalex
Upon my word I have had as much excitement on a car as in the air, especially since the R.F.C. have had women drivers. -James Byford McCudden
