Japanese writing makes it JDM.....of course.

So does a japanese tattoo make someone JDM?

This is the reason I bought a Miata. I have built some very nice Hondas that most people consider rice just because of dumbasses who can not afford anything but cheap knock-off parts that have no relevancy improving a cars power, handling, or looks.

Well, starting bid was $99.99 and there were at least 2 people going after it so it must be a relatively hot item.

JDM isn't my cup o' tea but hey, to each his own.

The VW scene had a trade ring with europe for a while. They exchanged bumpers and turn signals and **** so it only cost shipping. The euro bumpers were far superior to the American ones though, so it made sense until someone realized that you could spray bedliner on the tops of the american bumpers for the european textured top...then the ring died.
I still have a powerful lust for OZ Futuras though...I'd love a set for the miata:


and yes, they make a 15x8 et36.

Let me push up my JDM nerd glasses and explain - Market has nothing to do with where a product was made and everything to do with where it is to be sold. Many USDM cars are made in Japan, Mexico, Korea, etc. but are still USDM. There is at least one Chevy which is made in America and sold in Japan, and therefore JDM.

Anyway, yes it is stupid, I'm surprised people are still into it. I'm a supermod on a JDM forum and even the admins are over the whole JDM thing it seems. Now everybody's just trying to make fun, fast cars. More my scene anyway.
