I have found a site in Japan for checking the history of your Japanese import.

Auction grade, mileage check, accident damage report, radiation check, correctly de-registered, its all there.

I entered my cars chassis number, which went through Japanese auction 13 months ago, and the report has come back with the correct auction image which is very interesting. Up until now after 3 months cars were generally lost in the system and coudn't be found. Turns out that is no longer the case...



I have not paid for the full report as i have all my auction documents inc. Full Japanese service history and BIMTA certificate and so i am happy with the history i have, but if you have doubts or are merely inquisitive then i could be a very handy tool. Cost for the full report is 3,500 JPN - around £22.00 at todays rates.

I have added the link to the navigation bar on my website or you can CLICK HERE to get there directly.

If someone gives it a try and it all works well then we'll make this a sticky in this section.

I presume you didnt have any auction photos or sheet in the past?

Why not make this a sticky?
As in my initial post i'll make it a sticky once we have it verified as legit and peoples auction photos are correct, and if course that the service it provides is as promised.

I have had one done for mine but takes 24 hours to complete apparently

Thank you - i'm sure there lots of people hoping for a good result. It will be interesting to see what comes back. Did your car come through auction?

Does it give auction grade too?
Well it certainly provides the photo and so i would expect you'll be able to see the auction sheet aswell :smthumbup

No not seen auction photos before. That is definitely my car.

I had lots of other photos of the car on the dockside in Japan and I got lots of the service history and manuals with the car in Japanese. Plus I have the Autobacs labels on the car still, etc. Happy that the car is/was as described by SVA to be honest. :handsup:

OK - Just changed the link to my own website.

As everyone knows (sorry for carrying on about it :handsup: ) i have been very concerned about the integrity of imported cars since i first started looking for a car myself last year.

I'm going to make a dedicated page on my website over the next few days, uncovering some of the things that i have found. Gimme a couple of days and it'll be sorted; the link to the HPI checker is there and working now.

There will be some twitchy backsides coming soon!
I think they'll be a few people with a sickie feeling in their stomachs if i'm honest when they see the thread title.

It found mine (no picture though) and mine was imported 7 years ago,
It will be interesting to see how far back the pictures go.

If i don't calm down i'll end up doing a check on my own car i'm that excited about this site :crackup: :crackup: :crackup:

TBH mine is purely out of interest. I know what's happened to mine. It's sat on 4 axle stands stripped back so I can see for myself. It's had some fun in its life but it's totally solid, no welding and BIMTA certified and zero rust. To me that's the important part.

I did have the "dealer network" story so it would be interesting to see if it went through auction. Sure it did.

Yes mine was an auction car, came through Torque GT.

Have the auction sheet and found a link to it online

But doesn't show the auction pic when I put in the chassis number

Found mine. No picture which is what I was expecting but under grade it says G S R and Japanese writing then a 6 at the end?

Oh and mine was imported 11 years ago in 2005! So it goes back quite far!
