Not really sure about the US market to be honest, but I think the main importer there is Motorex....I may be wrong on this though!

At the moment, Motorex is the sole importer for skylines to the U.S. market.

http://www.motorex.net

As far as performance parts go, any of the performance outfits that can supply greddy, trust, blitz, apexi, HKS etc etc will be able to source bits for you through their normal channels. Similarly, for body kits.

I got a guy that says he can get me a 98 imported and up too US specs for about $30,000. Does that sound like a good deal or am I getting raped?

it's a great deal if it's true! I find it hard to believe that the modifications could be made for that amount, considering the work required to convert to left-hand drive alone.

Get a break down off all the costs involved that add up to the $30k and look for anything obvious that is missing.

From what I understand, the $20,000 - $25,000 that Motorex charge does NOT include conversion to left hand drive. :eek: :(
