I was wondering where you guys get parts for your kei from.
I'll be trying Daihatsu and Camskill for a couple of bits I need, but failing that any suggestions of who to try? I hear theres a good supply of tuning parts in japan, but are there any reputable sites/suppliers with sites I can read?

I've seen mention of Yahoo auctions - is there an English text version of the Japanese site I might be able to understand? I can only find the Japanese text site and google translator isn't great  :(

Ah the joys of clicking random Japanese text I don't understand and finding lots of pictures of food... there seems to be a lot of pictures of food on blogs, japanese thing?

Tado has a couple of useful links, if he doesn't post them up, give him a poke with a private message. I think both Andy's, Don and Mark have experience of online purchases.

I myself have to stay away for the sake of my pitiful bank balance  :lol:

Yeah it's a bit awkward buying from Yahoo Japan as you first need to run the site through a translator (such as babelfish.yahoo.com/ ) and then they only deliver to Japanese addresses so you need to go through a 'buying house'.  Basically you tell them what you want and how much you are willing to pay, send them the money and they then bid for you.  There are several companies that do this but I'll let the others recommend who they use.

The other option that I have used is to buy through a member who is already over there - soldave.  He can probably find you out any part you want new or second hand as was in the process of getting set up to be able to bid on Yahoo Japan too.

Most of the bits I've bought have been through this company - http://www.japanauctioncenter.com - you can bid through them, most sellers wont ship outside japan, and they sort out the shipping. They seem to be reliable and they're the cheapest of this sort of company I've found.

although recently I've been getting bits through SolDave http://keikarsinthepark.co.uk/index.php?action=profile;u=84 send him a pm with want you're after.

Hi

I usually use D-Sport for most of my X4 parts but as the engine/box are very similar L512S Avanzato parts usually fit. As the L500 Mira/Coure is now pretty old in Japan, parts are getting hard to get hold of but I found this site recently

www.kc-technica.com/tuning/index.html

To get parts I use these guys

www.irs.co.jp/oversea/index.html

Basically I tell them the parts, they source them and send them on to me, much easier and less hit-and-miss trying to go direct  :)

IRS are very good so long as someone in your country hasn't already got exclusive rights to use them  :mad:

IRS have appointed one seller as the only one in the UK that they will deal with for Cappuccino parts.  We used to be able to approach them as an individual but can't any more.
