    hahah i wish i was back in SF alot of the time :(
    as for tuner shops, there are alot from huge (HKS, 5ziggen) to really small (A-sports, white crow) Its pretty impressive how they treat their customers and how much they invest in actual racing to back up their products and improve their image. But there is a decent amount of bling bling, hyped up products that are pretty useless

    most cars are fixed up here. atleast rims, lowered with exhaust. its part of the culture here. i mean just look at superautobacs, kinda the japanese version of ur everyday car part store, like kragen or wut not. but they carry all of the aftermarket parts. anyways...here are some pics of my last trip out to superautobacs, there was a small mugen display there:

    didn't you see those comercials a few years back when fedEX was bragging about how they were the only curiors to china, if they have shipping to a 3rd world country like china, for sure they will have it for the most technology oreinted country like japan
