The best part about this business of exporting used cars from Japan is the chance to help other car fans, petrol heads, gear heads, motor maniacs….whatever you want to call us….to get their hands on a good, reasonably priced, Japanese performance car.
Pound for pound and dollar for dollar, I think that your 1990s and 2000s Japanese turbo cars like the Lancer Evo from Mitsubishi, the Supra TT, Celica GT-Four, MR2 Turbo, and Soarer Turbo from Toyota, the Skyline GT-R and GT-S from Nissan, and especially the all-wheel drive Impreza WRX STi from Subaru give you by far the best bang for the buck.
Helping a fellow performance car fan in Halifax, Canada to import this 1999 Impreza WRX STi Sports Wagon was a delightful bit of work for me since this is exactly the car that I myself have at the moment. AND I LOVE IT TO BITS! Mine is a 1996 but it is basically the same car (my customer’s 1999 does have a bit more power than mine, though). So selling a car that I know is so super good just makes my day; and I know that our man in Halifax is going to turn heads with this, the quickest, best handling, most serious looking wagon ever made.
And he is going to do more than turn heads: he’s going to give some bystanders a few sore neck muscles as they turn to follow him while he accelerates 0-60 from a standing start in mid 4 seconds. (And he might give his passengers a crick in the neck, too, if they don’t put their heads back on the head rests before he does a power pull in this car. You put your head back or the car will do it for you. Enough said.)
And not only does the GF8 chassis Impreza have excellent acceleration, it will also corner at speed with a DC-2 (I’ve seen it done); so you have a car here that handles with the best of its time.
And not only do you get the power and the handling and the cool looks, but you get the WAGON. This is a very practical car, with good load carrying and passenger capacity but with basically compact exterior dimensions: 4,340 X 1,690 X 1,440 (LxWxH in mm).
I cannot praise the Subaru Impreza WRX STi (GF8 chassis) enough. And I strongly recommend purchasing a good one direct from Japan (especially if you are in the UK, Canada, or New Zealand) and importing it yourself. I can help you do it. It’s worth it.
Enjoy these pictures. You’ll see some sensible mods that the previous Japanese owner has done: Exhaust, coil overs, strut tower bar. Many used performance cars from Japan have been wisely modified and so you can often get an extra plus for yourself by buying one here.
I was totally clueless and was having a really hard time finding someone that I felt I could trust to help me with these auctions. A couple folks recommended Mathew over at JCD and I very reluctantly reached out. Yeah, I have trust issues. Dude put me at ease and really walked me through the whole process. After a couple months I didn’t end up buying a vehicle, but that’s on me. When I changed my direction, Mathew helped me wrap things up and wished me well. I have zero reservations about reaching out to these guys or recommending anyone else to do so. Very helpful, knowledgeable, prompt and everything I needed. You won’t be disappointed.
Ordered an Acty Van with these guys. five star service all the way. everything went perfect!!!. I was so afraid to import a car myself. JCD made it seamless. I would import wit them and only them again and again. Thanks guys!!
Discovered KEI vehicles about a year ago and spent many hours searching the internet in hopes of finding an affordable van state side, to no avail. That is until I sent a message to Mathew at JCD. He was quick to respond, answered way too many of my silly questions, and worked diligently to find the right van for me. He is thorough, clear, and timely. Made the process simple and enjoyable. I am more than excited to work with him again.
I highly recommend the service these gentlemen provide.
The entire Team at Japan Car Direct has been incredible at making purchasing a vehicle from Japan quick and effortless.
Matt and Yoshiro are extremely friendly, and have performed above and beyond my expectations from start to finish. No matter how many questions you may have, these guys will know all the right answers!
If you’re looking for a vehicle from Japan then look no further than Japan Car Direct.
After ordering my minivan from Mathew and the folks at JCD, I will definetely use them again. Took three months to get the van but I am on the other side of the world. Van arrived in better condition than I expected although battery was dead and gas was extremely low. Other than that, the documents were sent to me promptly and the process of registering was seamless with the supplied documents. Thank you Matt and team and I look forward to working with you in the future!
When starting my path of importing a JDM classic Land Cruiser, I spent weeks doing research before actually committing because I’d never imported anything before. I was fortunate to come across Japan Car Direct, and that’s where I met Mathew. Wow, where do I start with Mathew..... (Just kidding Chicago!) Mathew was fantastic, from spending time on Skype answering all my questions to teaching me everything I needed to know to successfully find the truck of my dreams. Well today in fact I picked up my truck at the port, and it was in even better condition than I could have seen in the pictures and from the reports provided. Guess what, just ordered another one! You are the Master Mathew. Go Hawks!
