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!

Mean and Green

One of the few Soarers (JZZ30) that compete in the D1GP, this particular example belongs to Ryoji Jinushi-san. It features a bright green paintjob and a BN Sports bodykit with a massive Koguchi power GT spoiler.

BN sports front bumper and hood, to get wider wheels upfront, they used T&E front fenders

Work Meister S1 wheels 9.5×18 in front and 11.5×18 in the back, the brakes come from the Supra with slotted AP racing rotors

The doors are made of FRP and the windows have been replaced by acrylic ones.

Cars and Music?

There are two passions in my live and that are cars and music, so allthough this is an automotive blog I had to share this new CD release with you guys, and maybe some girls? LOL!!

This new CD from 16 year old singer/songwriter Gabriella Cilmi, Sweet About Me, is something special. Her single Sweet About Me is on a constant repeat in my Winamp playlist. Go check it out
