    Looking at a H3 Hummer, you don't find many in London

    Anyone had any experience with them?

    Its rare, but you can get right hand drive ones, most are left hand drives though.

    They're huge even by American standards. They're also a bit of a joke, they really fell out of favor since 2008.

    I'd imagine alot of American cars probably don't work too well in the UK due to size.

    I like buying cars that you dont really see on the roads much in London

    So was thinking a Hummer would be different

    another car im looking at is the 370z or the GT86 Toyota (sports)

    And Big Cars will be Hummer, Dont really like range rovers they are so common

    I have a left hand drive Ford F-150 that I bought for a bit of fun and only used a handful of times. Left hand drive is a pain in any car but in a huge American lump it's close to unusable.

    If there are a few right hand converted ones about then you need to aim for one of them. They are a horrible thing to drive and you would be better aiming for an X5/Q7/Cayenne/touareg if you are looking for a big lump that drives great.

    Also nothing screams pimp more than a hummer. Some guys like that image but it's not for all.

    I live 5,000 miles away from you where 1/3 people own a F150-550. Moving is so easy because literally everyone's friend owns a truck.

    I guess it's normal to want uncommon cars because I've always wanted a Range Rover. Parts + servicing is way too high since it's a UK based company and all, can't really compete with Ford. Hummers here really do have a bad rap, even South Park ripped on them a few years ago.

    I would get an H2 not a H3. If you are going to get an H3 you should just get an F-150.

    i had 2 H2's i personally wouldnt own a H3 its not very hummerish lol its more like a rebuilt ford or something
