Guarded Ignition Switch location

Hi - I'm the planning process of fitting a guarded red toggle switch to my S3 seven, and all the usual places for this switch seem a bit comprised, i.e. too close to the steering wheel and all the danger of switching off by mistake whilst cornering.

Where have everyone else placed their guarded ignition switches.....?

Mine is between the oil pressure guage and the temp guage. ideal for me. One thing to be careful of is how close it is to the tonneau, I shortened the bottom of the mounting bracket by 2 to 3mm to get it as low as possible between the two guages.

thanks - that's exactly where I'd like mine - but I must have a different dashboard to you, there's a tube running across the dashboard just below there - there's no way the switch with it's toggle guard could fit there.

I'm stumped...

In the end I didn't like the guarded toggle, it was too plasticky, so I placed the switch by itself between the oil pressure and temp gauge, as Tazio recommended, I think it looks OK.

Mine is above the guages where the little light is on yours, far enough out the way not to get knocked.
