Parts Prices

Postby majormalfunction » Sun Jul 03, 2016 8:44 pm

Is it because I am new to Delicas?

Where can someone buy new parts WITHOUT being gouged?
I've gotten a couple of things from a few dealers (I won't mention names) and they ask ridiculous prices for some things

eg; Air filter for $65 - That's just insulting

I think dealers everywhere outside of Japan hear "JDM import" as "$$$ $$$$$$".

I like https://www.amayama.com/en, their prices are quite reasonable even after you add the shipping, and they have genuine Mitsubishi parts.

I've recently ordered from https://oemmitsubishiparts.com/ (AKA Southwest Mitsubishi in Texas) and their prices were only marginally more expensive than Amayama. I imagine shipping within North America might be cheaper than from Japan.
Nothing says "poor workmanship" more than wrinkles in the duct tape.

Hey man, check out Rocky Mountain Imports. Mom and Pop org, best prices locally. Might take a couple tries to email but if you give them a ring you'll get some decent quotes. My air filter was like $35 before tx.

You really need to shop around to get a feel for things.

There are the local (Lower Mainland) JDM suppliers:

    Maximum Overdrive
    Amazing Autos
    CVI
    Silk Road Auto
    Rising Sun Auto Imports (RSI)
    Japanoid

On the Island:

    Coombs Country Autos
    Rocky Mountain Imports (RMI)

There are more. Some dealers will gel with you, some may not. Just remember that they are in business to make money. Ask questions, find out where the product is coming from. For example: A Korean 4D56 will fit in a Delica but the parts don't necessarily interchange with a Japanese 4D56. The China Motor Company (in Taiwan) is in business with Mitsubishi, as is Hyundai in Korea. Actually, so is Chrysler, Ford (at least has been) and others.
