I can't stop screwing with them and finding new shit that even amazes me. I have recently hooked up with a "guy" in J-land and he is willing to import me just about anything I want, short of needing to be shipped in a container. (he would probably ship me a car too, but I have another guy for that)
anyway, I have been trolling several sites that are only accessible in Japanese and stumbled into this.......
Car Mazda Atenza
Vehicle Model GG3S/ES · GY3W
Model year 03.08 to 05.06
Material Urethane resin
Color Black (urethane material color)
Brand TRUST (Greddy for those playing at home)
Product Code 17040111
Now to my knowledge nothing has ever been produced state side by Greddy for our platform other than exhaust and it was short run at that. I have found, springs, struts bars, sway bars, and all kinds of stuff from Trust/Greddy, Apexi, Blitz, Kazama, and others for what IMO is dirt cheap.
The best part of this part however is not the name. The best part is it is urethane which is ultra flexible and resilient. All we have state side currently is FG stuff that in time will flake and chip. Anyone who has a BR lip can tell you how annoying this is.
now here is the kicker. Shipping isn't cheap, but when I can pick up a glass lense 1G head light for $63 or less.... I might just have to order some stuff.
Also very curious if one of these will work with our USDM CPUs. there are about 40 different models F/s Right now on their version of eBay, and made by companies like HKS, blitz, and Trust....
Will open this thread and share as I and others discover new cool parts we didn't get.... but might be willing to pay to get.
PS for those who don't care to google it. Right now 1 yen = 1 US cent.... so 100yen=$1. exchange rates are tits right now, and make me want to spend a ton of money on the 6 and the 13(already ordered 2 things for the 13 and potentially an entire nismo arm set).
