    Is this just too dodgy to consider...?

    Just come across this company in my hunt for a car. They look kinda dodgy as they import cars from Japan and sell them here. Any involved pitfalls in this, or is it just a nice way to get a car little bit cheaper...?

    Evo is the only decent car there but it does look dodgy at a glance.

    pmsl not in the least a racist company name lol

    Grey imports are a large market, things to be aware of they may be different specced to the uk equivalent, use different parts that may cost more and be harder to get, and may be more to insure.

    I wouldn't say that Nippon cars was a racist name for a company that specialises in ....erm.... Japense cars, but have the website as [url]www.niponcars.co.uk[/url] (with one n) seems a bit stupid :lol:

    lol I found that kinda weird.

    I figured the website thing was because niPPoncars.co.uk was already taken...

    Nah I got an E:oops:

    Drinking instead of GCSE revision then arriving for the exams with an almighty hangover is not big or clever, the mocks gave me a false sense of security though as I did get an A in those:thumbsup:

    I was only joking :oops: As you were stating N when it was P :p.

    Oh bum too late for an edit:

    Never too late ;-)

    was talking to someone recently about jap imports and he reckoned cars are forced off the road by green legislation at approx 60,000 Km so a bargain may be had
    but as those on that site are mainly 10yrs old wouldn't really class any of em as bargains.
