A question for the right hand drive side of the world

Postby Chuck.hudson » Thu Sep 05, 2013 9:23 pm

Hey guys I'm from Tennessee and over here in America having a right hand drive car is one of the coolest things you can have as far as tuner cars go and my question is is it cool for you guys to import left hand drive cars to be different?

same model but different in LHD vs RHD? - RHD is easier for me as that is all I have driven.

However, if a unique model that only comes in LHD, then there are plenty of people who import and drive american cars such as mustangs or corvettes here in NZ.

Recently I was looking at a LHD 240Z, but decided against it as I would prefer a RHD 240Z.

Comes down to personal preference really

In the UK....no. The only reason to buy a left hand drive car is if they were never made as a right hand drive version, even then a lot were converted by previous owners, enthusiasts or companies. Having a LHD car is inconvenient, removes around 30% of the value of the car and makes them difficult to sell. Can't remember the last time I even saw a LHD car in the UK other than foreign cars over here on holiday....it's definitely not cool.
