The world of custom in Japan is, in my opinion, like no other. The imagination, originality and the money, time, work and effort people put into customizing their cars is just awesome. Want to go to Japan to experience the stance life and think a couples of weeks will do it? Think again, I’ve been living here for 14 years and have traveled here 5 years in a row for a period of a month each time before finally deciding to make the move to Japan and still feel almost every day is a new experience.
Even the old school styling still impresses me today. I think a lot people would just turn and say “meh” or “rice” (god I hate that phrase) by the kind of people that I personally think really have no imagination of their own or are just fresh to the car scene and maybe don’t even posses a drivers license yet a lone a car. I believe a true car/stance enthusiast will appreciate virtually all forms of custom work.
Don’t see much of the Nissan Cube having any custom work done on them but this simple kit made them look respectable with these universal fender flares, the wheels and little trims such as the front and rear lips and side steps. The blue and white colour coordination looked quite nice!
If you’re interested in either these fender flares or the wheels we can order them for you. The flares come in four sizes S/M/L/LL. Wheels come in from 14″ 7.0j up to 17″ 9.0j and hole fittings range from 4-6 on specific sizes.
Back to the VIP whip with this favorite choice for some people with a bit of cash to blow, the latest model of the Toyota Crown (kind of old now in car release side of things). This particular one comes in shocking pink as a limited model.
How much should be spent on customizing your car? Celsior custom bad boy with enough money thrown on it that it looks like they forgot to take some off before spraying it. Money was definitely the theme here, money on the floor, money spent on the interior to give it that wealthy woman’s luxury look (a little over the top in my opinion though) and even money printed on the paintwork. The wheels were very nice, awesome custom paintwork on those, I really liked them even in that colour.
I think Barbie threw-up in here….
There were a couple of Italian cars at this event, one being this Aventador. I have to say that this is my favorite car along with the La Ferrari. The only thing that I disliked about what the people decided to do with this was the choice of wheels. For me they could have gone with something a bit more tasteful. The HUUUUGE wang on the back was sweet and the idea of adding the Italian colours to it was a nice touch.
Japan is famous for big cities coated in neon lights and it doesn’t stop there because one thing that is hugely liked in Japan with customizing is LEDs. How do they make their car stand out in the street, at night meets or just showing off at big events? LEDs and neons will do all that for you, shops/bars/clubs etc use them to catch people’s attention, so why not do it to your car.
Oh and robots are obviously big in japan too, like the one in this Lexus.
