Click here to join our importing exporting JDM Cars discussion forums


The inspiration for our community grew since 2004 since the rise of imports of amazing Japanese cars from Japan's domestic market (JDM), most of which were previously unavailable in markets outside Japan.

In that time there have been many different websites, communities and of course companies formed to serve the JDM Import Car enthusiast community.  Unfortunately since this is the automotive industry, there are a lot of underhanded and dishonest things that do go on when it comes to JDM Cars.

Most concerning of all are communities sponsored by different JDM import companies that ensure negative opinions and information cannot be circulated about their dealings, many hiding under the guise of being an enthusiast site and trying to claim they are unbiased.  There are certainly many great communities and importers to serve the needs of the import community but there are perhaps just as many that are waiting to take advantage of unsuspecting JDM Japanese Used car buyers.

Unlike many other communities and sites, we have absolutely no involvement or ties to anyone in this industry.  We are individuals who want to get the most out of Japan's finest offerings of JDM Cars and help others do the same.

This site was created first and foremost with the consumer in mind. Our goal is to provide real exciting, unbiased and factual information about the excellent variety of JDM cars available for import.

Vehicle Tonnage Tax and Recycling Fees - Import Discussion -> Japan Car Export/Auction Discussion

Instead of burying this in another thread, as this comes up from time to time, this is what I was able to find out:

Did some digging on this ...

The Vehicle Tonnage Tax and Recycling Fees are reimbursements that an exporter can claim back from the gov't on a vehicle that is exported.

The Tonnage Tax is about 10,000-50,000 per shaken
The Recycle fee that was collected on the car either at the time of purchase or a previous registration when they brought the law in to effect was 10,000 - 20,000.

I'm going to guess this would explain why some exporters may operate on a very low fee or sell cars for next to nothing. They are happy pocketing the few hundred bucks they get back on these fees.


So if anyone is claiming that you need to pay these fees, they are profiting from you.


saftey inspection - Import Discussion -> Canada - Importing JDM Cars From Japan

Hello everyone,

As some of you are aware, I am a proud new owner of an Impreza and I'm looking to find a place to have the vehicle inspected. I have heard that you can get it done at Canadian tire but they're really stringent and pricey. I was wondering what some of your experiences have been and if you guys had any suggestions. I would appreciate any help as I'm new at this and have never had to have a vehicle inspected before.

Cheers

Very helpful Ryan. It looks like there are a few JDM friendly shops around. I appreciate the info and I will keep everyone updated once my vehicle lands.
No prob :) Maybe make a phone call to some of the shops and make sure they are still ok with doing inspections on JDM's. Sometimes they change their mind and don't want to do them anymore if ICBC or other overseeing bodies start giving them a hard time.


1998 Subaru Forester S/Tb Questions - Subaru -> Forester

I'm looking into buying my first JDM through Brian at B-Pro and one of the cars I'm looking at is a '98 Forester S/Tb. Since I am new to JDM's I thought I would find out a little bit more about these cars.

Are there any common issues with these cars or things I should know about before purchasing one?

Any information regarding S/Tb's would be great!
One of the issues I had on my forester was the rear wheel bearings. Subaru tried using a spherical bearing in the sf5 and it didn't last all that long. Apparently 120-150k is fairly average for the life of these components. It's a bit of an expense to consider when shopping for one, but I can say other than those bearings going my forester has been great.

Also, if you can find a type A I recommend it. It's no more performance, but the leather and the features are nice.
Check out my build thread if you want to see more of mine.


Any Linkecu tuning shops in BC - Subaru -> Impreza

Hey, just got a link ecu in my v3. Need to find another shop as I'm not confident in the place that installed mine.

Thanks
most places that do Dyno tuning should be able to tune it. have you tried asking around the shops that have dynos to see if they've tuned your type of car with link ecu. you might get lucky and find someone with a "base tune" for your car.


New member - New 00' Legacy GTB - Import Discussion -> Videos & Photos Of JDM Cars

Hi there, pretty new to this forum, I just bought a Sube. It should arrive in June as that's when it's eligible for import!

Check out these pics.

I am pretty happy. I basically walked in looking to buy a different car in this guy's stock, but he had just sold it a day or two before. He pulled up this one and said he had just won it in auction, I said ok, Lezzdoeeet. And boom.

Super excited to get the car. There's a couple of dings and scratches on the body - not really concerned about that. I will clean it up. My first plan is to refurb the solenoid box, replace the vacuum lines in there. Then fiddle with the exhaust actuator to help minimize the VOD.

Not really looking to mod the car heavily for performance. I wasn't even looking for a JDM at first. I am a snowboarder and wanted AWD and some space in the back, so I was looking for an Impreza or Legacy outback. The domestic models I was looking at would have run me double what I paid for this for the condition. I also prefer the look of the JDM models.
Nice GTB and welcome to the forum it's nice gotta love that white color.
Thanks dude, you too

Just bought an Impreza type R V4 - Import Discussion -> Canada - Importing JDM Cars From Japan

Hello everyone,

I just recently bought an Impreza type R-V4. The vehicle is due to land in exactly a month and I was wondering if any of you could suggest somewhere I can take my car to get it to pass the safety inspection. The vehicle is really clean and has good tires. I guess you could say I'm just trying to line up my ducks so that I'll be prepared when the vehicle lands.

I would also like to know what exactly I will need in terms of parts to have the vehicle pass?

Here are some pictures of my new ride :)

This is from your post on nasioc:

Question..what modifications did you need to do to get your car to pass inspection. I need to start sourcing some parts or find someone to straight up pass it for me. The vehicle looks to be in good shape right down to the tire tread so I'm hoping it won't be to bad but I'm expecting to have to get DOT headlights and wire up day time runners.
So what I'm saying is if your looking for a shop who is familiar with rhd's and will help you source the parts to properly pass it then fine. All I'm saying is what your writing on nasioc and here is not suggesting that.

Yes of course because the vehicles is in really good condition. I'm obviously going to look for a shop with the least amount of hassle and I hear that some shops will straight up pass you sometimes, provided you have you day time running lights wired up.

Okay well that's a straight up accusation on your part and your wrong. If your looking for a bone to pick with someone you have got the wrong guy. Im not sure why your PMing me.. I just examined myself respectfully and truthfully.
I meant to say "explained" myself truthfully and respectfully. Had to type the message quickly at work over my phone.
The only bone I have to pick with anyone on here is those that support soiling the already fragile reputation of rhd vehicles in Canada. Like I said in the PM I sent you, if you are looking for a shop for an easy pass, or to overlook deficiencies in your vehicle, then do it somewhere else as this site does not support that.

Anyone who speaks English would equate your comment of "I need to start sourcing some parts or find someone to straight up pass it for me." with exactly what I'm asking you not to do on here.

In Canada, if you look at other jurisdictions like the USA, we have one of the most lax systems to get these cars on the road. If people in the rhd community start circumventing the basic safety regulations that are already in place, that's how these cars eventually get banned because the public safety risk is now real.

Ignition not wired correctly? - Subaru -> Impreza

I have just got my 98' STI and a big thing I have noticed is my ignition switch is not working correctly. I can "turn the car off" and pull the key out however it is still running. to turn the car off I need to engage and then disengage the parking brake. Can anyone tell me why this would be or direct me to a correct wiring diagram so I can maybe figure it out?

Thanks
Turbo timer? I have one in my Land Cruiser that operates in a similar manner. If you turn the truck off and don't step on the brake it will run for a while. As soon as you touch the brake it will stop.
That's definitely a turbo timer lol, look around your kick panels, interior and such, is it beeping? my 98 sti has one and works the exact same way, turns off after 30 seconds.
Let it shut it self off. Turbo is cooling down.

Driving my import from Vancouver to Calgary - Import Discussion -> Canada - Importing JDM Cars From Japan

Hey Guys,

Pretty new here! I am getting my first import hopefully at the beginning of June. The car will land in Vancouver and I intend to take it back to Calgary. I am looking for guidance on what will be required of me to be able to legally drive the car from Vancouver to Calgary.

Is it possible for me to insure the car while I am in Alberta (and the car is in Vancouver), get an in-transit permit, and drive it home?

I can't seem to find anything that says that's not possible, but that doesn't necessarily mean I'm in the clear. I would rather get it all taken car of here than messing around with ICBC and temp ins and all that jazz.

Thanks again and I appreciate any experience you can share.
J
Never mind! I fingered it out.
Welcome to the forums jsdbub1 so what was your solution? AFAIK most people get a temp permit here from ICBC.

What car are you bringing in? Can you do a pic thread for us?
Hey there jdmvip, thanks! My understanding is I get insurance from AMA in Calgary, get my intransit permit from them as well, fly out and drive it home. Pretty much it. Simpler than I thought.

I am bringing in a 2000 GTB BH5! I just have the japan pics right now! Couple dings and scratches on the car but it's something I would like to do some work on myself so that's ok with me. Hoping everything mechanical is ok...
I would strongly recommend shipping it instead.

If you were to drive it back from Vancouver you are saving about $100, losing a whole day and risking the chance ( a very good chance) of your car breaking down during the trip, there is also a good chance that the car is not completely road worthy when you pick it up at the docks.

Call precision carriers if you want to get it shipped to Calgary, I've used them in the past and have nothing but good things to say about them.
Hey there Vr4much?

Thanks for your opinion! I am not looking to save money by driving it home. I want to drive my car as soon as it lands. I will take your advice into consideration, but my import broker went out of his way to recommend that I drive it home.

I understand the risk, and I think it's worth it :)
Driving the car as soon as it lands is something we all want to do. However, when a car lands isn't when you are able to take it home. Sometimes it can take up to a week to clear customs while you sit and wait. For a journey of that scale just to find out that your car isn't ready, might be a bit of a hassle, especially if you have to take time off work to go get the car.

Also, check the tires. Some imports come with extremely ratty tires that are hardly even road worthy let alone road trip worthy. I drove my forester about 20k on the tires it came with to the nearest tire shop then they were thrown away. Any mechanical issues should be stated on the auction sheet so I wouldn't think you'd be breaking down on the trip home. Other than that, just bring a can of gas and a set of jumper cables, because those are near guaranteed to be empty and dead respectively.
Hi Millhouse_5

Thanks! I figured there would be a need to get gas and possibility that the battery may be dead.

My import broker is going to let me know when it's landing and he will let me know when it's cleared customs as well. Summer is very quiet for our office so no issue taking time (salary).

The tires are DOT stamped and they seem to have a decent amount of tread left.

Yea I just saw a guy bring in a B4 and drive it home with no issues through the same importer. Worst case scenario, I need to call AMA and have them come get the car. I don't think it's set in stone that it will break down, but I am prepared for the possibility. No mechanical issues listed on the auction sheet, just some scuffs and dings.


JDM vs USDM Honda CRV Differences - Import Discussion -> General Discussion

As per the title, does anyone know the differences between the 1997-2001 JDM and USDM Honda CRV models if any? Obviously other than the steering wheel being on the other side.

Thx
-Stephan
Mostly all cosmetic changes for the JDM models. It is still the same engine 95-98 is low compression 99 and up is high compression b20.

Fullmark model has no spare tire on the back and most fullmark come with lip kit

Some other models have the rare swivel passenger seat, navigation, rain visors, rear mirror, larger rear wing, front mirror on hood, push bars etc.. They have a lot cooler stuff then here ;)
How about the transmissions and gear ratio, are they the same as USDM? I know for Toyota sometimes JDM vs USDM the ratios are different.
As far as I know they are the same. I have been looking into importing one as well and I didn't see anything about transmission changes.

K cool man, I'm mostly concerned that USDM parts will strap right in. They're good vehicles though, would be a sweet buy.
Yeah they are defiantly great. I have a 97 but the rust and high kms has taken over.. I really want to import one.

I have a Thule rack with aero cross bars and a Yakima fat cat 6 snowboard carrier for my GC8. Honestly you can't go wrong with either Thule or Yakima racks. There are many attachments you can add on and they make your car so much more practical. I typically keep mine on all winter and mount it again as needed for camping trips in the summer.

Out of province edmonton - Import Discussion -> General Discussion

Hey just looking for suggestions on where to get an oop done in the edmonton area
When I picked my car up in 2013 I went to Action Muffler on 99st for my OOP. They didn't seem to mind my exhaust being as large and loud as it is, but make sure you have DRL wired up before going in. I bought some DOT marked headlights for my inspection as well but I don't think they even checked for that. I believe I paid around $100.
