I can answer your question if I know what you are talking about…

It stays the same, assuming we are talking about the transmission.

If the foreign car manufacturer wishes to conform to US gov’t. standards
it will list the transmission functions as you have them, PRND321.

Cars in Japan use the same P R N D L lettering system.

@ragingloli kinds of says what I think.

I have never seen P R N D L before, so sorry for the first post.

^^ (Good. Yet another reason not to trade in my 2006 Subaru Forester for the BMW M5. $92,900?)

@Mimishu1995 P R N D L means Park, Reverse, Neutral, Drive, and Low, which refers to the gears for an automatic transmission.

Just throw five speeds on the shifter, with an R and three pedals instead of two.

@jerv I was going to go for 8 but then I figured most people will be swamped with 5.
