1999 Nissan Silvia Spec R S15

Today I picked up my 1999 Silvia from the depot. Firstly, the car matched the condition that was stated and shown in the pictures, which was one of my main concerns about importing. However, knowing that Ben and his team can deliver as promised, I will have no hesitation about importing again.

Secondly, I would like to highlight that my case was somewhat different to the average person importing a car. During the process of importing I was deployed in Afghanistan, which created some difficulty in communication and placed a lot of strain on times and availability. Ben, my hat goes off to you for being flexible and understanding to my situation. A very big Thank you. There are a lot of importers out there, and J-Spec is the King of the biz!
