Thumbs up

Hi, I just bought a 93 540i and love it. I've got less than a year left in Germany and would love to get this thing converted to US Specs so I can take it back to the states with me. If anyone knows where I can get pricing / information, please let me know.

Thanks, Greg

Excuse my lack of knowledge here but are driving a righthand steering wheel car like mine.......and looking to convert it to lefthand for the USA ?
If that is the case it sounds expensive.Would you be better off to sell your car in Germany then purchase another one in the USA ?
Good luck.

Greg,
the transportation guys (the guys that ship the cars) can probably give you some leads on who and how much that will cost. if you can afford it i would price just buying a new one, you'll save about abunch of money if you just order a US spec one to bring back
