What's the LHD market like in Ireland now. The reason I ask is that my father has bought himself a new car and asked me to sell his LHD E46 for him. It's a '01 330D. I can't imagine it being worth anything to anyone living in Ireland due to it being LHD and costs a fortune to tax.
Then someone suggested that it may actually be worth more than a RHD due to their value on the continent and apparently there are guys that buy LHD cars here and export them. Anyone know anything about this?
I'm going to give it a clean and stick it up on donedeal and see what happens. I have no idea how much to ask for it though :confused:
Has anyone here bought or sold any lhd cars recently, and if so, what's the market like for them? Thanks

Mate of mine sold his LHD E46 to a specialist LHD company in Nottingham.

Got a very good price for it, though had to obviously arrange a ferry and flights
home. Not sure if there's any market here for them.

Second hand car values seem to be stronger in France and Spain, so that'd prob
be where it'd end up if you sold it to one of the places in the uk.

Thanks Don,
I looked up that place in Nottingham and sent them on the details. We'll see what happens.
