Rx8 conversion RHD to LHD?
« on: October 27, 2016, 11:24:06 AM »
Hello all. A long time since I posted on here.

I recently sold my Mazda 13B engined Ro80 for very reasonable price, and it is now in Japan, where unusual cars are in demand.

I'm looking at a rather nice 2007 RX7 here in France, but unfortunately it is right hand drive.

Can anyone here give me any advice on experiences or possibility of converting it to left hand drive?
All the best, Dick

Its possible to convert it to lhd. Unfortunately you need really alot of parts to do that.  And only option basically is to import them from US. And because of shipping and parts prices, cost will be big. I remember some one sayin here in finland, about ten years ago, that it would cost about 7500€ with MoT documents, parts and labour

Power is nothing without control. Weight is enemy of performance, handling and braking.
