JAPAN CAR EXPORTER

Japanese used cars. Used Japan car exporters. Used Japanese car dealers. [ tradecarview ]
Was going to use this to export an Impreza to me before I got mine in Dublin dont know much about them Wayne might tell us more but with shipping costs and all that might be cheaper with this dont know weather you can get a mechanic to look at it before you buy it would strongly recommend you get a good mechanic to look at any car you buy but this place looks good might come in handy for people might use it if I was changing my Impreza wouldnt be anytime soon it worth a look

Re: JAPAN CAR EXPORTER

there are some nice looking jdm classics on there, but with the exchange rate as it is, you would probably end up paying similar as from a uk dealer, and in my mind the price would have to be signficantly cheaper in order to take the risk of buying a car without physically seeing it first. but worth looking into all the same. cheers mate.

Was about to put it up I remember when I got my first Integra Type R 97 it was a Grade 4 had auction sheet from the Dublin garage I bought it from and it was mint really was no marks at all like new as you said above buying a car without seeing it first bit of a risk dont know much about how it works if you would import your own car going by that site they have English Importers and for all other parts of the world so you could talk to your own to ask the questions and find more about it but I would say that the Grade sheet is spot on but if you could trust a good importer in the UK send you pics of car and get it checked out by a good mechanic and everything was 100% I prob would go for 1 from their but as I said everything would have to be perfect and Id be happy with it
