Converting a European Spec. car to American Spec. can be done, but is costly and is rarely worth the effort. Most people will just sell the car and buy another when they get to the US.
The biggest problems still remains that UK cars are right hand drive while U.S. spec cars are left hand drive. If you buy a car that's right hand drive just for the 3 years of driving in U.K., it still makes it hard to convert it here in the states. I've seen cars that are right hand drives here though, so I doubt it'll be a big problem but it's worth looking into.robg said:But- there is a special military sales program that deals w/ this exact situation. You actually get an even better price than doing european dleivery and you can keep the car in europe for as long as you need to. They're US spec cars.
I have driven a LHD car in a RHD country. In the Cayman Islands. It wan't that bad. Good thing drive throughs aren't popular oustide the US :lmao:robg said:Hack-
If he goes through the military sales program then he'd be buying US spec car-- which means left hand drive. So, he'd have to deal w/ that while in the UK. Buying a UK spec car would be nightmare on several fronts-- converting to US spec, paying the higher price, dealing w/ steering wheel on the wrong side, etc.
