    Hey there guys, and possibly girls.

    Ive been looking online for importers in perth, and i have stumbled upon one that seems decent , JL Imports.
    I was wondering whether anyone here has had any experience or heard anything about them.
    Or maybe you know of another very good importer.

    Cheers

    The thing is i dont know where to get my car from in Japan, as i have originally been looking at tradecarview, but recently ive been informed that its pretty dodgy. I want to be sure im getting a quality product, and not realise ive bought a piece of junk when it arrives here in Freo.

    email him and tell him what you are after. he buys from the auctions and only gets the best quality cars in....mine was absolutly MINT, and had 95000km on it....so he only finds the best

    just inform him of what you want and he will find it and can organise an inspection and HEAPS of photos.

    Thumbs up

    I Also am interested in this.

    How much approximately do you's think it would cost to import a coupe into Perth? or even a nice hatch. Just rough estimates.. although I'm kinda in need of a car sooner, rather than later, I would rather wait to get something I would really enjoy owning than just jumping on some turbo car from the quokka.

    Cheers
