Is this just a US thing then? or S54 too?

I remember in my Roadster the roof button was back there between the seats and many people relocated to the front console as there's a blank and you didn't have to twist about to reach it.

All I have between the seats are two blanks and a central red led. A future project was to add a USB charge point in one of the blanks, but debating whether to bother as I rarely drive it long periods. I was looking at one of these which looks almost the right size for our switches

though the easiest way is a flush socket in the cigarette lighter I suppose!

Behind the handbrake is the correct (OEM) position for the S54 rear screen demister.

It comes from the roadster set up I think, the US spec cars may not have the alarm LED but could be wrong. Looks like an easy mod and makes more sense than its current position.
