    what's your driving position?

    I came up to ask you guys because i saw a guy with a really strange position in the way home.
    I'm one of those guys who have bad position . i put my left hand on steering wheel at 10 o'clock position , and right hand on shifter (where it belongs) . it may look pointless but i still keep my right hand on SMG shifter but Audi is manual so my gesture looks better in it.

    I set my seat as far back as it will go... Stretch out my right arm like a gangsta.

    I drive in Naked Position, and always make sure to have at least one hand at all times on the stick.

    i also have a stick so one hand is there unless cruising or some moments tracking, funny it's the extremes. i keep my left hand in the rest on the wheel, it's about 10 o'clock. and if making maneuvers i guess i would bring the right hand to the other rest. you have it right OP, if only you had a stick though, do you consistently drive in manual mode? if so one hand there isn't that bad, but aren't paddles fun? but you're right, i've seen some weird positions. my friend who used to live in south america drives with one hand at about 5 o'clock and one hand at 11 lol.

    i drive mostly in manual mode , since it's a jerky tranny in low speed manual mode is a most or else your neck is gone.
    i usually use leveler for shifting , paddle shifters only for twisty roads which are common here but they aren't fun unless you use M mode.

    9 and 3, as close to the steering wheel as is comfortable. Gives me more control. Leftover from my karting hobby I guess

    I have to keep both hands on the wheel with the E28. Its current alignment setup makes it a hoot to drive but if I let go of the steering wheel around town for one moment, Im going to end up in a parked car.

    I usually seat straight and with my hands on 9 and 3 and I would pull 8 and 4. This is the right way to do it. I have been doing it ever since I raced karting.
