Default Ordering JDM parts directly from Subaru

Has anyone ordered parts from the following links? Can some one forward me a phone number or walk me through how to do it on line? Thanks

Graham rocks (especially since SOA does not want to make money)

I work at a Subaru dealer and I still send Graham money, getting ready to send some more his way on Monday

What i have "learned" is that
Subaru of Japan is under contract basically not to sell to the USA

not to USA Subaru dealers and/or the general public

Reasoning?
The items are not licensed for release/sale here in the USA

You've got to find a 3rd party on most items.

I know a sales rep at Subaru Certified pre owned dealership in Japan (they call "Subaru Friend Ten" in Japanese. Ten stands for shop in Japanese language.) and they do export those JDM parts to overseas.

I work at a customs broker and basically importing parts to USA from Japan as private, non commercial import is permitted by the government.

japanparts is really everything you need. just talk to them and they'll work with you to export anything you want, as long as it's gray legal.

Well, the reason is simple;

what if everyone buy parts from Subaru Japan, not Subaru of America?
that's why Subaru Japan only release parts to Subaru of America, but as I said, importing JDM parts as private, it is permitted. Just need to communicate with those agents in Japan. However, over there, they use specific code to distinguish whether the parts are for Japan domestic or outside of Japan. They call it "Ruibetsu Kubun" and "Katashiki ****ei Bango", not just like "Impreza 2002".
