Stirring wheel switch

An idea just popped in my head

I want to get another e30 and swap the stirring wheel to the right side, for fun.
What steps would i need to go through to do this? is it harder than i think?

just an idea.

wheel first i dont know what you would accomplish by adding a kitchen utensil to your car,

but if you are reffering to the Steering wheel you mean a RHD converion? its an EXTREMELY in depth procedure involving finding a salvaged RHD car in the UK or Australia, having it shipped over and swapping everything over from the steering rack to the dash, to the pedal cluster, ETC

This is not something you do for "fun" lol..why would you want a RHD BMW anyway? even in germany they are LHD

I think it would be more fun to cut off the trunk and remove the rear glass of a 2d e30 and build a hatchback, or cut down and out from just behind the b pillar and gut the rear out to build up a truck bed, pluss it would be easier too.

Well... I think it'd be fun to put the engine in the rear of a e36.

So there.

hahaha...yes, definately a dumb idea. I thought so from the begining.

I have a friend who bought a mini from england and had it shipped cause he liked the right side for driving better...just cause.
