    What parts are in high demand?

    Basically I am negotiating to get a container of goods sent from Japan.

    What would be in high demand for Toyota Nissan Mazda etc used OEM and aftermarket goods?

    Send me your wish list.

    non rusty parts lol

    *edit* for real. There are lots of parts however, shipping costs have gone up and it sucks. Also you have to factor in if you are not getting the parts that are in the prefecture that you are shipping out of you pay 2 shipping costs. One from where the part comes to the port and one from the port to where you are going to pick up.

    But if you have this covered, many people ask for things like rims, suspension parts, aero parts and gadgets. Thats what my customers usually ask me.

    i want a bride zeta 2 or 3 bucket seat for my car in black, used is fine as long as it's not ripped and not faded to badly, what about a used high end header ie toda, fujitubo, apexi, tps maybe a nice exhaust like buddy club (spec 2) or toda, a carbon hood (levin) and trunk (coupe) these things should be fairly cheap especially used in japan

    oh yah how can i forget a standalone ecu motec, freedom etc etc, throttle bodies not(AE101 or AE111) aftermarket preferbably

    anyways thats pretty much my wish list lol

    Yeah shipping costs are up, but my job is to let them know what would work out and what to send, and then to give it all away to those who need it the most. They can handle the rest.

    Werd! I have to do that too. I recommend, shipping more square items. Such as seats and rims. Body panels are kinda a bieotch because of the irregular shape and fragility of them. Headlights are the worst. Basically anything that can be "boxed" is good to ship, and helps eliminate damage. Body parts are real PITA's b/c it takes up so much damn space. However I think you already know this, just wanted to help a brutha out. Good luck
