Even though the term JDM is quite used, there are not many people who would know its terminology. Hence, a short introduction is deemed important.
JDM stands for “Japanese Domestic Market” and it refers to vehicles, parts and equipment designed to conform to Japanese regulations and to suit Japan’s market. These regulations are known to be stricter upon their car manufactures compared with other countries. Besides this, the Japanese manufacturers, in contrast with any other worldwide companies, are more inclined toward innovation rather than long-term possession. Due to this intention, the Japanese carmakers are bound to improve and refine new technologies and designs. Thus, making them the perfect choice for any car enthusiast.
Yet, even though Japanese car companies have produced numerous attractive and well-received performance cars from the 1970s, these automobiles have not been exported beyond the bounds of their continent.
