Unfortunately there are a few threads about him on here.
I met him last year at jdm combe about importing a body kit from uras.
He said all the right things & I was truly about to proceed ( even took a bank loan). However reading all the problems people have had I pulled the plug.
I don't know if I was being paranoid or not.
He is a scammer, I really hope you get your money back man.
Here is the other thread where multiple people have been scammed.
The fact that Japwest mods still gets support from "well known" people in the drift scene is laughable, they should be ashamed of themselves.
I really don't get how people like Mitto and Monky London are still buddy buddy with him and promoting him through youtube when he's well documented for selling cars of a much worse quality than advertised, straight up keeping peoples money and not sending goods out and constantly posts cars for sale on instagram that he doesn't even own nor has even seen in person. Its mad.
Good luck op, hope you can get your money back.
here's the thread if you want a read https://www.driftworks.com/forum/threads/buying-from-japwestmod-caution.269503/
From what I've been reading it comes off like a ponzi scheme. For bigger or custom orders he's just using the next customers money to pay for/refund the last guy or just dragging it out till he finds a car for dirt cheap that matches what he promised feels a bit like bait and switch.
The only reason I think he's still around is probably down to the websites SEO. It comes up near the top for a lot of searches for me at least. And it doesn't hurt to have popular YT influencers plug him now and again.
I hate to say it but from what I've seen others post court seems to suddenly motivate them. So maybe it's time to look down that path if it's been 3 months and it's not even on a boat yet.
When you do get your money back I'd recommend Torque GT. I got the exact thing your after with a similar budget (slightly more). I used them and it was easy. I even got to dig around the auctions and find the car I wanted with images from the auction with the sheet and everything. From putting down my deposit to finding the car was about 2 weeks (I was very picky) Then once I had won it was right onto the boat. Took about 3 months to leave japan, come to the UK and get registered etc. They also split the payments even though I offered to pay it all at once. 500 upfront at the time, 6k when I won and the rest just before collection. I don't think I'd even look at anyone else now.
it's too sad...
bloody hell man is bad this
Can also vouch for TorgueGT.
Currently have a JZX100 MKII factory manual on a boat from Japan which is due to dock in a few weeks.
Thats just UK Drifting. Its not just Japwest mods(even though they are by far one of the worst), quite a lot of shady companies/people getting support they don't deserve.
