Currently I am trying to determine whether importing a Landcruiser from Japan is a good idea, and through what channels I might do this. I am interested in a LC Colorado from the 90 series, and in The Netherlands - where I live - and surrounding countries these cars are quite rare and mostly rather expensive.

One option is to use the services of a company specialising in car import from Japan. Obviously this would make things relatively hassle-free, and from what I've read there are several companies in the UK which have a reputation for being reliable. Unfortunately, in The Netherlands direct import from Japan is less common because we prefer the steering wheel to be on the correct side of the car  Cool

A more satisfying and cheaper option could be to have an agent based in Japan buy a car in an auction (after a thorough inspection, obviously), and try and get through the import formalities myself.

Have any of you gone this route, without regrets afterwards? Can you recommend agents based in Japan who can be trusted, and who make sure to provide cars which meet their customer's requirements regarding condition?

Any help to point me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated, thanks !



Regards,
Frans

I guess most used cars imported from Japan are Impreza’s, Skylines and the likes, but is there no one at all who got themselves a Landcruiser this way?
