JDM tuning is often performed on Japanese vehicles such as a Nissan Skyline or a Toyota Supra. Tuning fans can be inspired by the versatile JDM tuning variants. The tuning of Japanese vehicles is characterized, for example, by turbo optimization, large rear wings, boost pressure increases and visually attractive paintwork. JDM tuning vehicles should stand out visually. Of course, the vehicles should also be technically perfect and optimally tuned. J-Spec and JDM are often used as terms for Japanese tuning parts.

JDM tuning with original Japanese vehicle parts and original Japanese vehicles can often be seen on the driver's side. Vehicles from the JDM area that are used on the European continent are often right-hand drive. This means that the driver's side is on the right and not, as with us, on the left side of the vehicle. This is due to the left-hand traffic that prevails in Japan. Usually JDM tuning vehicles are not on Left-hand drive convertedbecause the effort is considerable. This means that JDM cars are usually only available with right-hand drive. The JDM scene is very large in Japan and England. England also has left-hand traffic, which is why right-hand drive is also common there. Before buying JDM vehicles, it should be clarified whether there are any problems with local registration with a right-hand drive. An entry in the vehicle registration document that it is a right-hand drive vehicle is necessary. It is advisable to inquire about the registration requirements for JDM vehicles before purchasing and tuning a JDM vehicle.
