There was a discussion about this topic a few months ago.
The regulation,roughly:If a manufacturer currently supplies a model in rhd in an EU country , then a rhd model can be ordered in a lhd EU country.

Thats why Vel checked rhd market sites ^.

For the modus, check out Germany.
Currently in coup's garage:
RM III coupe 1.5dci FVT,Audi TT Mk1 ,a bike and too much rubbish.
