I want to thanks my parents for their incalculable hard work for us and family for the support? I am obliged to PW and its members who were always there to guide me esp. @muradi @huzaifa.haroon @karnol @us000 @asim867 @CerwinVega @villain @aliusman420 @Nabz90 etc.

    Such dealers will never tell u that they have purchased the car from Khi, they claim to be direct importer, or they claim that their brother or cousin is in Japan who purchase cars from homes instead of auction, so there is no auction sheet...

    Or if they provide u an auction sheet, that would be fake... Can be Photoshop easily...

    How to verify an Auction Sheet...

    Auction reports are available online which can be checked on various sites, most common being japan-partner.com...

    Auction sheets is available online for only 3 months from the sale of auction, after which u cannot verify auction sheet yourself...

    But there are people who can verify your auction sheet more than 3 months old such as karnol is doing on PW...

    Basically Japan auction houses erase all the data which is 3 months old on daily basis, but there are some agencies or people who have facilities to store the data of cars auctioned on daily basis... If u have access to such an agency or person, they can retrieve the data for u...

    But as already mentioned, there is no backup data at auction houses, more than 3 months old....

    Normally car takes 8 weeks to reach Islamabad from the day of auction, so only 30 days are left for verification of auction sheets...

    Dealers utilize these 30 days for the repair of damaged cars, and usually show off there cars after completion of that 3 month period, so that a MANGO MAN can not verify the auction report, even if he is provided with the auction sheet...

    An Example:

    This passo was purchased by my friend few days ago.... with lot no 50383...

    JDM Time  Passo 2012 -1614561

    When you click the car shown, all the auction pics, auction sheet, its price will be displayed...

    Such as

    JDM Time  Passo 2012 -1614562

    Price can be adjusted to yen or dollars, in case of dollars multiply it by 100 to get the price in yen,

    6750 dollars = 675000 yen (in this case)

    Excellent Information Usman Bhai. Very helpful for those who have no idea of jdms and want to know about it.
    The Auction your talking about is held near Super Highway. The most popular one is Jan Japan Motors crowded on Auction Day with Dealers. Cars 90% there r totally F*cked Up. Majority r X, R and 3.5 Grades. The Free Biryani plate is cool though

    How To Buy a Graded Jdm from Dealers without Getting Cheated?

    Importing No doubt is one of the most best ways in getting a Genuine Vehicle, But it involves alot of Hassles and Time, Risk of Vehicle Damage, Theft of accessories . The worst part is the 2 Months Wait Period. Not everyone can wait that long and go through such hassles.
    So How to get a Clean and Graded Jdm from Dealers without being cheated?
    The Way is very simple. The things u need.
    1. A mobile with 3G/4G enabled.
    2. Link to Used Cars from Japan. Used Cars Exporter .
    3. U have to take an oath to not to believe on what the dealer says.
    4. Patience.

    Plan a day to go the Dealers where u can work out for 3 hours atleast. Start searching for the Car u desire. When u find something park up and go to the dealer. The First Question u should ask is. Do u have its Verifiable Auction Sheet? If dealer does drama like 3 months old import hai, Auction ki nhi hai bla bla. Simply walk away. But if he says yes its verifiable, Then Ask the Sheet. Verify it from Japan Partner, A to Z details of the car will be in your hands. If the grade and condition suites u then make deal go forward. Take a round of Vehicle and finalize the Deal.
    Note:
    1. Do always match the chassis # on the car and on the sheet.
    2. If Auction sheet is found to be genuine then no need to waste time bringin denter, mechanic etc. No denter, Mechanic can tell u more better than the Auction sheet.
    .

    How much would be the price difference between a self imported vehicle and a similar one bought from the market. If we take the example of passo 2012 or vitz 2012
    Driving safe is better than not being able to drive..
