Default Is it worth importing a LHD car under MM2H

I have a Left Hand Driven (LHD) Ford Fiesta Titanium 1.4 with 5 doors, Petrol driven 30,000 k.m. (European Model) Very good condition.

Would like to import to KL since the sale value is much less where I am.
I have enquired about the service in Ford Malaysia and they said it is serviceable but certain parts would be difficult to get for a LHD, hence need to be ordered and may take a while. However I don't know whether they have to import it from abroad, if so could be expensive then

So not so sure whether to dispose it off for a loss and get a new one in KL with RHD.

Any suggestions from those who had similar situations!

Driving a RHD in France or Spain for a 3 week period is a pain.
Driving a LHD in Malaysia for a much longer period and with the driving skills there, which in my opinion aren't too bad and deffo better than Singaporeans, would be something I'd pay money not to do.

Thanks Ex reg. Any idea of shipping cost from port Italy>KL. Doesn't have to be exact but rough figures?

There is a thread on importing cars, last month I think or maybe May, I think there are some costs there.
Long time ago I considered importing to Singapore, much more expensive there mind, and decided against it.

Yes, I found it. Thanks, the approximate cost would be somewhere between £1000 -£1500 if I opt the port from Genova, Italy to KL
