That was poorly phrased on my part. I meant the driver sits on the left side of the car. Like we do here in the US.

And I hope your brother-in-law feels better soon. I've broken my hands before, and it is no fun at all.

Padawan, just call Smartmadness, they stock the Euro lights your looking for. Remember, there is some wiring changes, since in Europe they use amber turn signals, plus they have that rear fog light.

*Some minor alterations are required to make the tail lights work with the US version of the smart car car. The lights will not come with any directions. You will need to obtain those from some of the smart car forums.

Please note! These lights are being sold "for off road and show use only" and may not be legal in some states or counties. Please check your local laws before purchasing.

Japan, Australia and New Zealand all drive right-hookers, as do Malta, Cyprus and India and Southern Africa. It's mostly an Americas thing, this doing on the left! In a Smart, it makes little difference, it's so close sitting together!

Hardly! America, south America, Canada, Africa, almost all of Europe and China. That makes up 90% of the worlds land mass. A very small percentage have RHD cars.

Oh... and...
