Brand new transmission internals!?!

Post by LowBuckCanuck » Tue Jun 23, 2020 7:46 pm

I found a site out of Japan that claims to have all manners of new parts for our cars. Including unobtainium like new body panels and transmission internals. Naturally, I'm sceptical of whether or not they actually stock the parts.

There isn't anything I currently need from this site, but I'm VERY curious to find out if it is legitimate or not.

Well, let's hope it's legitimate. Just got some bushings for the shifter. It didn't ask me for my credit card info but I did sign into the site using my Google account. Which was probably a bad move.

Wish me luck. Haha.

They dont have most parts that they claim they do. Amayama is a japanese parts exporter, and their supplier for toyota parts is toyota. If you want something strange, lets say a new leather sr5 shift knob (an option on the first gen tercels), and amayama says they have it, they more than likely dont.

There is someone on the FB page trying to source a replacement turn signal lens for his corsa (japanese 4wd tercel sedan) and he's tried amayama cause they claimed to have replacements, but they didn't.

Thats pretty much what I figured. Too good to be true.
