Has anyone have experience ordering parts and bumpers from Yahoo Japan Auctions

I searched through Yahoo Japan Auctions and found front JDM bumpers for dirt cheap when converted to USD. I know you need a "middleman" to buy the parts for you since many if not all of these vendors won't sell outside Japan.

I really want to purchase a JDM front bumper for the C-HR, but I have never used a middleman service to buy stuff from Japan. Anyone have experience doing this?

You keep mentioning them. Do they ship stuff to the USA? Has anyone in the US dealt with them before.

I emailed them about inquiring the bumper and this is what they said.

Hello.
Thank you for your message. Usually I use EMS for the shipping.
However, they can not deal bumpers. It is because the size that
can be carried by EMS is decided. And bumpers are over the size...
Of course, I can use other carrier (ex. Fedex, DHL, UPS) but, their
fee is very very expensive... So I will not use them...
Thank you very much.

Probably better off waiting for some local options don't you think? I'm sure with all the kits we've seen already that we'll get some cheaper knock off brands. Not surprising to hear that they wont even use the regular carriers.

For bumpers... its not impossible. Its only very expensive because of the volume.
