Hi Vulken

My personal experiences in importing a car from Japan have been nothing short of harrowing. It isn't the inavailability, but the process of going thru finding one, then bidding and making payment, making sure it gets shipped, co-ordinating with the shippies, making sure it lands at the port of call in one piece, dealing with customs, crooks and middlemen... trust me you are better off buying one from here.

Youre better off looking for one in India. I've seen quite a few Supras in the ACI classifieds.
