    Parts I brought back with me from Japan :)

    Just got back from Japan yesterday and brought back some nice parts with me. I live in both America and Japan so I go back at least once a year if I have time. I’ve bought many rare parts while in Japan but can only bring back a few at a time because of certain restrictions and ridiculous shipping cost. Some I sold and some I kept.

    2010 (planning to buy):
    Cusco Zero 2 Coilovers or Apexi N1 Sus.

    2009:
    Hiro Spoiler
    JDM 90-91 Tail lights
    Mugen shift knob
    92-93 Inazuma Lip
    Tanabe exhaust

    2008:
    Mugen Lug nuts
    JDM bumper lights
    JDM side markers
    JDM 1 piece headlights

    2007:
    Mugen Showa Suspension
    JDM window visors

    2006:
    JDM center console w/ personal box
    JDM armrest

                          Most of the parts came from shops that do work with cars. Everything is quite new and some are even brand new like the Inazuma lip. Bought it for only 1000 yen (around $9 US and costed about $20 to ship it to me). The only parts I didn't get from a store is the personal box and armrest. My cousin in Japan found those for me. Finding rare parts isn't too hard but the hard part is bringing them back to the US. Anything big and it becomes way too troublesome.

                              That's only because, I was told they like making small cars.

                              Let me know when you go again, I'd like to tag along with you.

                              I sure do like that HIRO wing.

                                It is possible if the parts are small but I rather not attempt to try it. The Hiro and Mugen spoiler are quite hard to come by even in Japan. Those parts can be pricey but OEM parts like JDM 1 pieces on the other hand are fairly cheap like $40 a piece. My apartment in Japan is kind of small so I don't have room for anything big. Shipping can cost around $400 (called and found out that's how much it would cost to ship my Tanabe muffler alone) so if I were to buy parts, I would have to bring it on the plane. Troublesome but I'll think about it

                                  I'm pretty sure they do like making small and compact cars. So much easier to get around

                                            hero

                                            You would be my absolute hero if you could bring back a set of rear wheel bearings for a JDM 1991 integra. The american spindles are a bigger diameter so I cant use those. I looked at buying them and getting them shipped (just for the two) $490. I told the guy "I could fly over there, get them and come back for less!" Then I did some research and there is a mandatory 4 day stay on iternational flights. (at least thats what the airline said) so it would actually be more. if thats possible hit me up on here and let me know a price.

                                              Since I had ITR stock suspension on my GS-R before, I'd say the Mugen suspension is quite similar to that. Ride height is quite similar as well (think it dropped .5 inch). Much stiffer than stock since the Mugen suspension is basically upgraded showa suspension. I think I still have the manual around so I'll take a look at it.

                                                  The lip is still at my apartment in Japan. Wish I took more pics of it. I'll bring it back with me the next time I come back. The post office wouldn't take it due to it's size (same goes with my Hiro spoiler) so all I could do is to bring it back with me by plane.
