    Hello guys!

    I want to do correction to my last post before this... what I refer to Kuda Deluxe is Kuda Diamond! Kuda Deluxe is the first design of Kuda which the grill are horizontal..
    Some Kuda Diamond have the same design too but the latest one has Grandia-like grill... but the difference is, Diamond's grill is horizontal pattern while Grandia is vertical pattern which almost copy BMW's grill!

    here in Our Country RHD is prohibited! that's why 2nd hand cars coming from japan like pajero,trooper,civic and RVR must convert from RHD to LHD before they can register and sell the car in the market. Reason for RHD is not allowed? Safety reason.. our roads and highway system is not design to cater RHD. Thus, might create a road accident.(Arvic)
    Oh no.. do I must learn to drive again if I drive in Philliphines? -_-

    Btw, I interested in how did the RHD cars converted into LHD... do they converted perfectly or not? Did the wiper or turning lever also swapped? How about the engines?
    In Indonesia LHD cars just remain as it is. Mainly Off-Road Jeeps, Complete Build-Up Germany cars, and Military vehicles. Eventhough the import of those vehicles are limited due to the high tax and safety reason..
    However, I think Indonesian people needs LHD rather than RHD.. we often taking-over another vehicles from LEFT side! And some of the parking system made the passenger arrive further from the main door!!


    is RHD or LHD are not important thing? Check it below..

    Some anecdote... in the U.S. there is a service to convert LHD into RHD just for FUN! (mostly charged for USD600 and only for certain models only) This is mostly influenced to the fanatics of RHD Japanese cars.
    Another? Japan is the highest in LHD vehicles import and let those driven in their left-driving system. England is the next. Vladivostok of Russia and Myanmar are the vice-versa.
    LHD and RHD are somehow no more regard as safety function but slowly become a cachet.

    Another nice info about LHD and RHD I found on net if you interested:
    Australia is the first country to ban LHD cars in the market, however the old vehicles may still be LHD with additional sign.
    Only Indonesia, Japan, and Thailand, that never part of British commonwealth, but also drive left.
    Only Egypt which is still the part of commonwealth, but drive right.
    Driving-in-the-left-side-of-the-road habit are regard as the symbol of commonwealth, that's why several countries that gain independence after being part of British commonwealth soon become drive right, except India and Hongkong.
    Hongkong drive left, but Mainland China drive right... soon or late Hongkong just waiting its time to be swapped into right driving.
    Walking in the right side of the road was first introduced by Napoleon during the France revolution in 1789.
    RHD are just following the fighting habit of gladiator or the walking habit of soldiers... no other reason such as function, etc... even in some countries RHD regard as cars for lefties!
    No matter which steering wheel is located, you may only access it with both hand or single left-hand only.

    Some sources from Wikipedia, etc... compile yourself.. this is some of what I remember...
