Hi All,

I clicked my way here from UKMk4's site.

I'm just about to buy a new R here in Tokyo.

I've always owned Dubs until I moved here last year. I bought an Impreza, but turbo-lag doesn't float my boat. I long for the days of my Corrado VR6 again.

You will probably notice me asking some tech questions as reading the brochure in Japanese is a bit :banghead:

Some very nice pics in the Readers Rides section. (Don't tell my missus I'm thinking of mods before it's even ordered!).

Cheers,

James

Depends what you want importing...

Not so many Euro cars here.

It's a bit of a status symbol to have a foreign car, so they order them to be LHD for extra status, even though you drive on the left of the road, same as UK. It's funny to watch at the motorway toll booths.

As I haven't ordered it yet, I'm surprised nobody has advised me on the fastest colour....... (or is that debate dead and buried?)

Will post pics asap.

I swear they sell those cans in my local supermarket!

Anybody else taking the bait...????

What really sucks is the options are very limited here.

Only Black Blue or Silver paint, Recaro or Heated Leather seats (dark grey only), and all 5-doors are DSG only.... and you can choose the stereo.... and that's it.

Laters,

J

I think you would be best off with a MkIV r32 instead of the newer MkV :)

WHAT!!!! MkV 3 door in black pearl with leather, sat-nav and manual box. Absolutely the fastest combination. :fight:

And the best looking.
