feasable yes but the costs could be huge especially on a heavilly equipped car as that. if you were using new parts you would need at least a new dash and steering rack but more than likely there would be lots of small differences you would need to change. plus you would lose any warrenty on the car. are you looking at converting your own car or buying one to import and converyt?

Re: Eleganza right hand drive to left hand drive

The problem is ( well not so much as a problem ) but I have the opportunity to live in Madeira and all cars are left hand drive. To buy a car there its really expensive i.e. a Punto is approx 12 grand ( its because of the import duty ) If I take my own I will get in paying less but I am right hand drive . I was thinking the change as I could spent a bit yet save in the long term .... Its an interesting thought anyway !!!

regards Paul

I am fairly certain that you can order left hand drive vehicles from UK dealers. I know we have supplied a Multipla in LHD.
