... I had a Dyno graph emailed through to me the other week showing i had a very healthy 395BHP on standard boost hehe That in itself is worth a lot in my opinion given a RB rebuild will be probably in excess of 4k if i threw a rod on the way home!

Just found this thread after deciding a JDM import was a good idea.
Am I right in thinking VED is still lower on them?

Usually yep, most are registered as PLG.

My DC5 integra was £270 a year road tax and my Toyota bB is only £155!

Never heard of them, you'd be better sticking with some of the more well known importers

Their website looks pretty basic and as the fees for most of these companies are (relatively) low, you might as well go with someone with a good rep in my opinion, especially if you dont import often
