Interesting, so they made an Japanese version of the manual with LHD car in the drawings. So it's not just an Euro-spec that the dealer imports and modifies to be legal, but a proper Japanese LHD version?luokyio;n3547780 said:
I did not know that. That is fantastic. Now I wonder what's the reason for that? Feeling exotic for driving a LHD car in a RHD country?luokyio;n3547795 said:No euro-spec at all, completely and totally Japanese version which can be ordered either RHD or LHD right out of factory. Dunno if they've actually made two separate versions of the owner's manual, as in this one all the pics on the pages are from LHD model.
Pretty much; LHD had this image of being upmarket and fancy vs. being for the masses the way that RHD did; if I remember Clarkson's Motorworld correctly, the Yakuza always drove LHD Mercedes for this reason.Mitchi;n3548281 said:I did not know that.

I know of a few people who do that with new factory ordered cars. They change the specs on their ordered car several times and/or sometimes even back out of the deal completely before the car is delivered. If the car gets delivered, they immediately trade it in for something else, obviously losing a lot of money in the process. I guess some people are just hooked on speccing/ordering new cars, and not actually owning or driving them. An expensive hobby for sure.luokyio;n3548310 said:I cannot understand how people can order new cars with similar (or even longer) delivery times. I've already changed my mind 100 times of what should I have bought. :lol:
