So this is pretty painful to type as I have sourced my driveline components from J Spec / JDM Racing in 2014-2015 but its turning out that a lot of the stock at J Spec is questionable at best.
The community keeps finding cars that have been stolen that JDM Racing / J Spec is selling parts from , its not painting a great picture. Either they turn a blind eye to buying stolen parts or they know that the massive influx in parts are from stolen vehicles.
I think its safe to say their supplier dabbles in stolen vehicles as these cars are showing up very quickly in North America sometimes within 3-6 months of being stolen.
The owners in Japan have started to reach out with serial numbers to confirm the stolen parts and also have a twitter tag you can follow. Two more cars have been confirmed at this time via engine serial numbers to have been stolen and then ended up in a J Spec / JDM Racing warehouse.
Here are a handful of the vehicles that have been reported stolen in japan and have shown up in North America
That vehicle was reported stolen in February 15th , the most important thing to note here is this picture of the scratched bumper
Fast forward about three months later to a posting on J Spec Auto
Slotted rotors and Red Pads
Post from the owner
There is also a Hawkeye STi that was stolen as well
The sale posting has since been taken down but that is clearly the owners car in that picture judging by the lip spoiler and hazing headlight.
Here is another car with very rare CE28n SL wheels
