R35 in Singapore

Yes I know I have a lot of R35 news the last few days. I will try and find some other cool cars 🙂

This car was spotted in Singapore. It looks like he had some phonecalls with the Amuse office. The owner ordered the Amuse spoiler, Mine’s exhaust and the BBS LM wheels that you allready saw on the Ericsson BMW M3

Message To The World

I’m writing this post because I’m a firm believer in the message that Ben Schaffer from Bulletproof Automotive is spreading. He provided us all with a very helpful document, in wich he explains where to look for when buying stuff from Japan

You can donwload the article here or read it when you press continue to read below this post.

I will let Ben do the talking… (remember these are Ben’s words not mine)

The original blog post is as follows:

Why am I writing this? I’m disappointed by the massive number of enthusiasts out there being misled by parts suppliers. I want everyone to have the facts before they make a special order purchase that is sourced from Japan. Buy from whoever is truly the best for your needs. Don’t just believe what you hear from your local supplier; understand how to call out BS. Don’t even believe blindly what I tell you as a parts supplier (if you’re buying from my companies)…feel free to challenge me with the right questions if you’re buying from me. I expect as much.

What is unique about this post? I’m going to spill a lot of behind the scenes info and secrets about how an importing company works (relative to the customer’s order and experience). Although it is the industry standard to not talk in depth about the behind the scenes details (the less informed the client is, the more BS the parts supplier can get away with to keep the sale), in this buying guide I will shed light on the secrets and potential pitfalls.

What is my goal of this post? I want everyone out there to be better informed. Its as simple as that. If people are better informed, they will make better decisions. If people are better informed, there will be less companies scamming people and less horror stories in the industry that we all hear about (parts took 8+ months to get, vendor stole customers money, etc) which reduces consumer confidence about buying imported parts.

Lets begin!

Garage Saurus Updates their R35

I have my new favorite wheels for the R35, these Advan Model F7 are the best looking wheels I have seen on a R35. I’m not sure on the sizes, but they look perfect. Saurus also mounted a new central exit exhaust, not to sure about the looks.
