the lhd market is pretty poorly priced for the uk as u can imagine.
the big problem I have with lhd cars - and I dont think its just me... is that they are easy to get used to when driving.. but.. if its a sport car that you will give some rice at some time (and why not ? ) then in the moment of overcooking it (as we can all do sometimes) one tends to revert back to rhd mode with unpredictable and often expensive results... the width of the car in your brain can easily change back to rhd, the left hand belts the door for a gear change and no lever aghhh ... end result...ooooooops.. trouble is, its only when you need to rely on the experience and instinct that you have developed in rhd for years, when you go into autopilot mode, that things go wrong.. what seems to be an easy thing to master is not something that the subconscious can adapt to that easily..
I have driving an Audi A6 LHD and this was an auto but as Captain said it is a little weird because you are constantly looking to your left to judge a gap but it is the right you should be worried about.
As to the TT I have it on good authority the rear window is restictive viewing but hey you have mirrors.
The TT design is growing on me but saying that so is the CTR and I wouldnt buy neither.
Each to there own at the end of the day. Also when you go to sell it you will get alot less again because it is a LHD and an import.
Wont insurance kill you being an import and a high group rating ?
Some companies might not even touch you because its an import !
The majority of cars actually drive better in LHD as thats the way they were designed. The RHD conversion usually involves a crude brake linkage from pedal to master cylinder (as on the Clio,Saxo,106,Golf etc) that spoils the feel of the brakes.
