Default JDM/Imported Subaru question

So I'm thinking about getting a Sambar

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subaru_Sambar


I found some locally for sale, but my big question is, where can you get parts for it? Brake pads, oil filters, clutch...

Usually the dealers, such as Japanoid, that sell these JDM imports will sell replacement parts.

If you are bored, you can always cross-reference parts to cars sold in North America. It was fun trying to cross-reference oil filters and brakes for a 1987 Mitsubishi Pajero.

IMO, these JDM imports should be driven as a second vehicle. You'll never know but you may have to parts shipped on an ultra slow boat from Japan or Europe.

Yup I would recommend Japaniod they sell them as well they tend to carry spare parts and they service them as well.
