haha like for example..

here in the philippines japan original parts are usually very expensive.. for my cornerlights (orig) its 4x the price of the taiwan corner lights, so I went for the replacement (taiwan)

its been almost 6 months now and the performance and looks haven't changed.. so instead of paying too much money for a glass original lights which cost a lot of $$$$ its a very nice investment sometimes..


what do you think? lol! lol! lol!

In my opinion it's whatever works. Like Scott personally has a original JDM thang goin on, all his stuff is original pretty well, and that's the way he likes it. If I can get the JDM things for a good price I'll go for that, but if it's available and substantially cheaper to get a replacement/aftermarket part then of course I'll go for that.

Oh, you mean OEM vs aftermarket parts. Well, it's gonna vary from part to part.

o yes! that's the other word for it! aftermarket indeed. yeah I agree, I suppose it all ends up to the person building the car, if they want all orig oem jdm parts then its really up to the builder.

It depends on how well they match with the rest of the car. Like I have aftermarket tailights and retrofitted headlights and I loveee the way they look because they don't stick out like a sore thumb. Like 20inch chrome rims on a stock Corolla. Razz

I needed to replace 2 rear shocks. So I ordered from Jap parts South London. They were not Toyota branded parts, but they were cheaper and so far I can't tell any difference from the original Vs the non branded parts (apart from the performance in the wallet) . And the same can be said of all the serviceable parts i.e. air, oil, fuel filter, sparks etc.
