Which garages can i have a right hand drive car converted to left hand drive?

For instance, I wish to export a vw Passatt or Skoda Superb to West Africa, but going to Germany in search of these LHD cars would be a headache for me. Since cars in the UK are mostly RHDs, I would like to buy one here and have it converted to LHD.

Thats impossible and if it were, you would pay 2 times as much to get it done as you paid for the car. I work in an automobile manufacturing plant and we make left and right hand drive vehicles.
