Stadt Berlin (Exportkennzeichen / Export transit plates / Экспортные транзиты), B

Very short Export/Temporary Tourist plate from Berlin! First time I spotted one with only 2 characters.

Also note the very unusual car: a right hand drive Nissan Stagea which was only sold in Japan!

A nice photo, Berlinspotter! You may upload left photo to German gallery. Moreover, a German interface is working on our site.

Maybe this Stagea is single in Germany?

No, not single but very rare. The car is for sale and the owner states that there are about 5 cars of this type in Germany.

I did a quick search via Google, there are probably even more than 5 cars in Germany, but all of the owners had to invest quite a lot of money to convert the cars from Japanese to German specification. Most "real" Japanese import cars you gonna find in Berlin are on British license plates, not so rare to see them. Will try to make some photos in the next weeks.

No, RHD-Cars are allowed, no problem at all, but you have to modify the headlights for driving on the right side of the road, the exhaust has to match european standards and I've read that you have to modify the drive train but I don't know why.

Otherwise if you want to drive a little bit faster, you have to consider that Japanese cars have a speed limiter (max. 160 or 180 kph?), which can be quite annoying, at least on german autobahns and if you have tough luck the door seals draw out at high speed as they aren't built to resist the pressure (happened quite often in the past).
