I'm new to BMW ownership, having acquired a '98 328i E46 left hand drive through my other half's late Father, who lived in Luxembourg. Apologies if I've missed a previous thread that discussed this subject (happy to be pointed there if there is); I did a search and couldn't find anything.
Re-registering it here and seems straightforward enough. It has an EU certificate of conformancy, is less than 10 years old (just), so there is a form upon which I can declare that the following bits have been changed (with supporting documentation):
2) Speedo to mph (currently only in kmh)
3) Foglight to UK offside (currently UK nearside/continent offside)
I tried a BMW dealer first for the worst case scenario - c. £2000
So far I've had mixed messages with regards to 1) - some say these must be replaced/changed to RHD spec, some say that they can be modified (including my local garage where it will be MOT'd )
I've found a couple of companies who offer kmh to mph&kmh conversion, so it looks like I'll send the instrument cluster off there......not sure what happens with the kilometre to mileage/odometer reading though (an ECU thing?)
The foglight I'm told, is the easy bit, but I'm not sure how this is done
Any advice on any of the above would be gratefully received.
