Could be anywhere I guess. Weren’t the RR going to the Middle East or Africa? Certainly with my MY21 you can change the headlights to a right hand drive pattern and also the mph to kph so it would only be the steering wheel in an inconvenient position.

A few years ago I was working out of Beirut. You could see the docks stacked with UK cars mostly 4x4 style. No attempt to even hide them once off loaded out of containers. Not sure if that’s still a destination, but clearly a good market, with a strong underworld and bribery to make it all work.
Many countries in East Africa are RHD.

I’m sure as many or more as exported are chopped for parts which can move freely into the repair sector.

Has anyone tried taking the OBD port out and replacing it with a dud one? If OBD port attacks are possible on these then having a fake obd port with the real one tucked up in behind would work a treat?

I saw a picture of someone's obd recently online where they had just removed the obd socket from its holder and put a padlock over the obd socket front face . Dirt cheap and effective but unfortunately I can't find the image.
