Since this comment doesn't fit easily into other forum topics, I thought I would post it here. I am seeking local Japanese sources for 2008-2009 5EAT drivetrain and transmission components for my personal daily driver. I am not impressed with the local Sube dealer service departments nor their ability to get parts. What parts they can get, involve long wait times and have a 300-400% mark-up compared to channels outside Japan.
Welcome to Japan!

I'm out here in Chiba as well!

I have not been to or seen much of these salvage yards. It seems that many of these totaled cars are simply dismantled and the parts are listed on yahoo auction. You can try to search on Yahoo auction for a good deal.
