Its really great downloading stuff to archive for future use, but totally useless if one cannot convert to metric.
Any suggestions guys?

What content are you trying to convert? You will notice that if you open a metric template and insert a component from the imperial library (and vice versa) it will be inserted correctly with no re-scaling required. Same thing applies to annotation families.
There is lots of 'native' metric content available as well.
Open up the family in family editor change units to metric then if there are any family types change the dimensions to the appropriate metric standards. I.e a 2' casework family may need changing to 600mm.
