Extra Items and More

Look here for that little bit extra support and great items about cars, website dealerships, community friendship and more.

 

Extra Automotive Content here, Community, Automotive Website Design, SEO, and more.

Like all Automotive Motoring based websites we want to offer our members and casual readers more information and interaction with ourselves and other people interested in not just cars and trucks from Japan, but vehicles and all from a global perspective.

More often than not websites offering access to auctions and stock from Japan seem to concentrate on 1 single narrow-minded focus point about importing cars from Japan. That focus is simply to catch your attention with a nice looking car advertised for an unbelievably low price on their website. All in all its good and everyone wins. We also followed this formula for many years when advertising here on this auto website Autotraderimports and on Tradecarview.

Car Talk, Lets Talk About Cars

 

Having been actively around cars for some 25 plus years in a consulting, sales, exporting, importing in a somewhat loose sort of way I want to talk more about cars, etc.

I am not one to spend all days on facebook or youtube looking at videos. Sometimes I simply want good organic content I can read and digest about all things Automotive. Make some content that lasts more than a brief flick of a finger or mouse click.

Yes, I want to have some fun and get conversations started on our own terms. Social media is great but we don’t need to spend every minute there, and occasionally breaking free from its fun also. Be adventurous and read an article and talk seriously with other like-minded automotive enthusiasts.

Stock vs Auction

Yes, this is a vital question for anyone considering buying a car new or used ex-Japan. How bid is the differences and what are the pitfalls of each.

Within this page, we will answer some of the questions and explain the added value of each to you the automotive consumer. Buying cars is a very personal thing and much of it is either taught to us by our parents or governed by what is socially acceptable or the norm in your country.

Some countries love to buy cars directly from dealer stock as the car is there, and it’s touchable to some extent. It’s also close to what the car buyer wants. No, it may or may not be perfect but it’s darn close. Most of the time darn close is enough for many people.

Other countries love to buy from the auction as its an adrenalin rush or I love

German Cars

Statistically thinking anyone would say that Japan is full of Japanese manufactured cars, and it is.

However, weirdly enough there are so many cars from Germany on the streets of Japan you must start to wonder just where these great cars from Bavaria were actually made, to which we all know the answer.

One look here when you drive down the expressway you will count every 2nd or 3rd car being a BMW, Mercedes or Porshe.

Just the other day I followed a great Mercedes Benz E500 limited edition with its large bulging rear fenders glaring at me and A Porche 911 996 Turbo went the other way.

 

Ok, and we know very well that it doesn’t stop with these two great Icons. For many years the Japanese public has long fascinated and yearned for these cars off large engine capacities and luxurious coachwork complete fabulous engineering from Germany. Sometimes overly engineered.

Do You Want The Best Car First Time?

 

Well, it obvious that you must do, who wouldn’t want to buy the best car first time right!

Or you get something that closely resembles what you ordered but not everything is quite right with the entire process. These are the processes are what we want to fix together.

Lets correct that by getting it right the first time. I know that you want to do this correctly, yes?
