Hi guys,

I have a 2005 Cayenne S in L.A.

I'm looking at going back to Australia and would like to take the vehicle with me.

The big issue is of course, LHD to RHD conversion.

Is this something that is technically possible and if so, can anyone point me in the right direction as to what would require changing? Does anyone know of any other Cay's that have been converted anywhere ?

I totally understand that it’s a fairly intensive and a difficult conversion given the electronics and removal of engine etc.

All replies appreciated.

Steve

Good god, I hope that it was done as a joke! Could you imagine driving that and make a turn and the "Steering belt" slips or comes off? and the setup for the brakes and gas. I see quite a few nuts and bolts there that could vibrate loose!! Could only be a joke..or a lunatic.

This conversion could be improved by using motors, connected to the PCM, to attain hands-free driving.

Also, mulitple stations could be supported, using magnetic clutches, to permit four-zone driving, to fully support the back-seat drivers. In that case, special care needs to be provided to ensure the steering angle sensor is properly stimulated, to retain functionality for the PSM.

If four-zone steering is selected, the new Tequipment wheel x4 might be a good choice.

Mate,

As an expat Aussie living in Chicago, I can appreciate your desire to take the Cayenne S back with you.

Finding a compliancing & conversion company that will do a good job may be very difficult.

I found this company - may be worth a try:

If they can't help or refer you to someone who can, maybe you should contact the Porsche Club of Australia - in whatever region you'll be moving back to - and ask their advice.

Good luck.

That Jeep RHD conversion was for sale on US Ebay a few months ago by a dealer on the East Coast. For mail delivery.

I guess it would be hard to reach the turn signals. :rolleyes:

Maybe someone from Australia should try to sell New Zealand and convert them to LHD....
