Hey pz'ers just wondering what you guys think of importing vehicles from Japan, the prices seem too good to be true but the website seems legit, I was thinking about importing high profit margin cars (Nissan skylines, honda torneos etc) and flicking them off

However I don't wanna get f'ed in the A on cost and such because I feel there are many hidden costs.

Wadda you guys think?

I'm always the final owner of any prelude I own.


I'd rather lose by a mile because I built my own car than win by an inch because someone else built it for me.

So many hidden costs. You buy a vehicle with a $6000 FOB price, expect to pay $9200 once its all said and done. Expect to pay at least an additional price+1800+15%ish of the price. That being said you can still turn them around for a profit. Make sure you go through a reputable company.

One of these years I'm gonna import a mint r32 gtr.
