I bet that the reason that people think JDM parts are so cool is because they were JDM, if it was just a redesigned USDM it wouldnt have the same hype.

Inotherwords IMHO I think that JDM is just a buncha bs, and just because its JDM doesnt make it cool, its what it looks like that makes it cool.

Yeah, JDM and Drifitng are both very overhyped.

When did they do that in the 50's? They never did it. Well not in the same sense as it is done in competition today.

Drifting in the 50's.....that's a funny picture. I can see it now. "......Dating back to World War II, the American G.I.s would find themselves doing fun activities when they're not fighting at the front. Like for instance, sliding of *drifting* around in the snow or dirt with their jeeps....," narrator of some history video.

Bring back old news:rolleyes:

JDM is different from what you see everyday. It's the same as aftermarket, and it's exact fit!

Just like how people in japan are always trying to ge US parts. It's stock, but different from everyone else on the road :)

JDM has diff styles. Lots of theirs we think cool probably because we've seen most of the USDM shit so much that it gets stupid and the JDM is better.
Also some of the things just look better. Like some of those body kits own all of the USDM kits.

it all depends on what part is "JDM"...

there's a difference between OEM JDM, and aftermarket JDM...

OEM JDM are originally equipped parts...

and aftermarket JDM is sort of a style of fixing up cars, sort of like lots of graphics, that are mirrored on one side, so the writing is backwards..

also negative camber, and a certain style of body kits, usually very extreme...

I like the whole OEM JDM thing, cuz it's different, but at the same time it's stock. I think it's about being different from the mass majority. Well for me it would be.

what I was saying was that if the JDM parts were made by a company like APC but looked exactly the same noone would be raving about how awsome JDM is.
