Default Importing info/help
Hi, I am new to the forum. I have been looking at some JDM auction sites such as autotraderimports.com and have been trying to decide if it would be cheaper to buy from a company like Tiger Japanese that has already imported the car for me. The auction sites seem to have alot of fees involved, I was wonder if anyone that has done this already has any sites they used or info/ a direction to get me started. If it matters any I live in Canada

Thank you

Are you talking about Front clip purchase? If so, I haven't experienced that. But, I have purchased JDM factory rebuilt engine about 15 yrs ago for $900! I also bought Datsun SSS engine for my 510 from Japan Loooong time ago thru engine trader here in U.S. and it was very easy transaction then.

Just curious what car are you try to get? Is the car readily available where you are located, if so why not just buy one? There's a lot involved with importing a car & can be very expensive to say the least. I personally have never done this, but I know of a few guys that have.

Well if that price listed includes everything (shipping & registration) sure why not buy it. I'm sure if you called them they would be able to better assist you.

All the fees and importing costs would amount to much more than what they are charging. They are a company and probobly import tons of cars/parts and get a discounted rate, allowing them to then sell the cars for a reasonable price.
