    Don't expect to find anything in Japan for any cars...excapt lame wheels, lame suspension posrt, and lame lights. I went to two places today that always had some decent stuff....and they went lame. Nothing but damn lame wheels, nothing hot like a 15x10 watanabe...all lame like 15x6.5 and 14x6...crappy wheels.. Only a turbo setup for an S14 and S15, and GTR's. And all the crappy HID kits that nobody bought 3 years ago.

    I am completely dissappointed in the selection this year...so dissappointed...that I didn't even remove the camera from mt bag to take pics... It was pathetic. Litterally. You'd actually have a better chance getting parts from Ebay than the stores over here...


    The only thing I saw that sparked my interest was a set of SSR Mesh that were 17x8, with lame tires on them, 4x100, and somewhat clean...and they still wanted $699 for them...:mad:



    Alert is...Legacy's are hot over here. Mini-vans, and K-vans are hot, and Fits are everywhere, I'm even empressed in the Suzuki K-kars that are hooked up over here....but still nothing to really take pictures of.:(


    I guess when I get back I'll just buy a mig welder, a cutoff saw, and a lot of material...and make my own stuff.:D

    If I hit a bookstore, I'll snag some mags. Most everything elso over here is just STOCK, OEM, or normal....it's the JDM.... Plain, cheap, toss-a-way cars is the new fad.

    I pass 10 cars on the road...

    2 Daihatsu K's
    2 Honda K's
    1 Nissan K
    2 K trucks
    1 Fit
    1 Huge Truck
    and a moped



    It seems the gas price has effected JDM so bad...that fun cars are off the list. The only hopped up cars I've seen is the Stagia that I get limo'ed in, the drift cars at the event...and actual rice at the shops.... I saw a hopped up civic at the store today, big wing on the back, stickers everywhere, gold painted rims, and drum brakes on the rears....

    I'm spending the rest of the trip getting full at restaraunts, drunk at bars, and relaxing in the onsens whenever I pass one.

    If you find a deal on ANY 5x100 17" rims with or without tires... Let me know... something with around a 40-48mm offset for the Subaru... Don't care about condition as long as they are round...
