A lot of sports car. A lot of drift car. Not a lot of money. The PS13 Silvia offers one of the best buys in performance car metal these days. If you know how to buy right.

Here is another of our favorite cars to export from Japan to sports and performance car fans overseas, and especially to the U.K.: The Nissan Silvia.

Be it the S13, like this mean looking black machine here, or the S14 or S15 (the famous “Ichigo”) we can always sell a used Nissan Silvia with confidence because these are sports cars that are well made, basically simple, easy to modify (especially for drifting), and tremendous fun.

And the prices for Silvias bought from the used car auctions here in Japan and from the dealers are often very good; I am even surprised sometimes to see such good Silvias going for such reasonable money, and certainly compared to what you would have to pay in the U.K. for a car in worse shape and with way higher mileage.

A Silvia bought direct from Japan is one of the few sports cars and drift cars that you can buy and have fun with even if, like me, you don’t have a lot of cash

Here’s the trick to getting a good, cheap Silvia for tuning or drift work: Go for an S13, go for something with just under 100,000 miles on the clock. This puts it at near 160,000 kilometers and so, because of the psychology of the number, Japanese drivers will shy away from spending much on a car with “high mileage.” If fact, in most cases, these cars will do double that before any major repairs. So the car will have low re-sale value in Japan but not really high miles, so at the dealers and used car auctions here the car will go for cheap. You can buy it and laugh.

Next, keep a look out for an S13 that has a few good mods of the type you are looking for, be it drift, on road handling, or power tuning. We can help you to understand the Japanese auction sheets and we can find out more about the car in Japanese from the dealers here for you to help you find and choose a car with some of the right mods already on it. More money saved and more good car coming to you.

And so that’s why we can sell the Nissan Silvia with such confidence: Good motoring fun at a good price. Our Silvia customers are always happy with these cars and we are always happy to sell them.

  • 5 star review  I can't recommend JCD enough. Mathew was a fantastic person to work with. As a newbie to the Japanese auctions, I was quite naïve and had far too many questions. Mathew was kind, knowledgeable, and patient through the entire process. My Minicab arrived last week and I am quite pleased. I would not hesitate to work with Japan Car Direct again in the future. Thank you Mathew!! Jay A.

    5 star review  IF YOU ARE OVERLY CAUTIOUS READ THIS I am over the top and I am aware of it. Matthew probably should get an award for dealing with me. I dig into everything and am used to fighting for fairness at auto auctions here in the USA - we own a small dealership. Early into my fist purchase (of many) Matthew earned my trust. He’s a rare breed: a true professional and exceptional at what he does. The world NEEDS more like him in every industry. Matthew is one of our most valued partners now, as we strive to bring JDM to Rochester and the Great Lakes. I’m a tough case, I openly admit, but he worked through my caution and I’m now very happy to purchase through him. Call me if you want, I’ll recommend Matthew to anyone. Drew

    5 star review  I always wanted a Land Cruiser ! Mathew helped me find 2 beautiful trucks from the Japanese auction. Had them delivered to Freeport, TX last week. He was amazing to work with. Fast response time on bids, super easy to work with, he has a lot of experience and answered all questions promptly. Will be working with JCD more in the future to purchase more vehicles !

    5 star review  Very pleased with my experience with JCD. Mat helped me with my purchase of a Honda Beat and its shipping to the port of Baltimore. Everything was seamless and I would (and already have) recommended this company to several friends.

    5 star review  Do yourself a favor, call Mathew at Japan Car Direct. Let him take the worry about doing business over seas off your plate. Not knowing anything about importing vehicles from Japan, I spent countless hours studying and trying to figure it all out. The headaches were too much! After Mathew walked me through the process it was a piece of cake. We've already bought a couple and are now buying more with complete confidence. Thanks guys, much much appreciated.

  • 5 star review  Can not recommend these guys enough. I dealt with Matt, who was extremely helpful and patient with all of my stupid questions. The way they have the whole process is so convenient, especially with the live video translations of the auction sheets. I will absolutely be returning to them in the future.

    5 star review  Trustworthy group here! They made it easy from point a to b. So glad this was the first group I tried as I have heard horror stories about the import process. Highly recommended.

    5 star review  Yoshi and team were patient in helping me find the right car (green 2016 Prius 4WD) and get me through the process. Flawless service, prompt response to communications, on delivery the car was better than expected, very close to new looking. Their recommended partners for shipping and entry into NZ were on the ball too. Highly recommended! Pro tip: don't mess around; decide exactly what you want, then bid to win.
