Conversion Of Right Hand Car Drive by ebube123: 9:25am On Jun 24, 2018
Hi, please house I want to ship right hand car drive from Ireland to Nigeria but I don't know if it will be good to do that. I will convert it to left hand drive in Naija but one of my friend told me that conversion of cars always give problem with time. Please I need advice on whether I should still carry on with the importation or not. Thanks

Save yourself the stress. Add the 100-200k needed and buy a regular LHD.

Yes you can import right hand drive and no it doesn't give issues when converted right by a qualified technician.

The only caveat I will give you is to make sure selected vehicles are available in nigeria don't go and import a stand alone ride that will need modification instead of direct swap of parts

You want to buy for when you come back to Nigeria? Just keep the money and buy from the US instead.

Have you even asked what brand model it is?
Maybe it could be as easy as micra , Peugeot 406, 206 or even accord euro

You should have added that it won't come cheap if a qualified technician is to do the conversion.

If you live in Ibadan.. you won't mention Micra. To the pijo non of them is worthy of conversion. Accord? The leg problems are enough without any manipulation

Don't get your self killed.
An American spec with lhd I'm sure will be cheaper than the rhd you want to buy.
You'd also spend money doing an imperfect conversion.

That only very few people can correctly do it.... and even fewer are willing.... And it is never the same thing with the normal hand...no matter what you do... And ultimately it's never worth it
