I want to go to Japan sometime this year to shop for car parts. I need some 17x9.5 CE28's in 47mm offset, a DCCD-less JDM STI tranny, Spec C gas tank, and the lightweight Spec-C glass. I figure I can round up these items and ship them back before I leave, and the amount I save by not having to go through a middle man would pay for my airfare.

I'm thinking of going for 10-14 days sometime in the fall (or maybe sooner)would like to share hotel costs for the trip... and the cost of a rental car while there.

If you've been before, that's a bonus. It would help if one of us semi knew his way around .

How about departing next Saturday (5/31) and returning on 6/09????

Actually, I am traveling to Japan next week for work. I will be busy during the work week but have the full weekend (6/07 & 6/08) free. I don't need any more car parts (besides if I brought any parts back... I would need to bring a new wife too...ha ha)

FYI.. I am staying in Kariya City

I'd be down, provided I could fit that in my schedule. We could convince my brother to go as well who has been 3x times and speaks a good bit of the language ;)
