s4simon knows all about them, there are 2 in Adelaide in RHD, the only ones in the world apparently.

i vaguely remember him telling me that they were done by bmw, or some of their mechanics.....

Out on a Test Run today.  BMW M1.  The only RHD version in the world and only 14,149 on the clock.

as an update to this post, DS's M1 isnt the only RHD M1 around - they were surprised too. there is another one that has been purchased by another Adelaide collector that Ash knows reasonably well. car should be in SA next week.

Conversion of the 'white' one was carried out in the UK. 

So now there's (supposedly) two RHD cars in the world and they're both Adelaide owned.

Blue one was converted here (with the assistance of BMW Germany I believe). Conversion was carried out when the car was new.
