    Smile Jap tuning companies - BIG LIST!

    OK, hope this is of use to some of you. I know I'm missing loads, especially in the wheels and bodykits. But, there are literally HUNDREDS of wheel manufacturers in Japan, and many more companies doing bodykits. I'll add to this as and when I find 'em. Or feel free to add to them.

    Note I have tried to group them into categories they are best known for, but there is inevitably some crossover - e.g Trust make aero kits, Veilside make tuning parts.

    Yes Babelfish does Japanese - its actually quite amusing some of the translations it comes out with but anyway..

    Anyone looking to upgrade engine internals should probably have a look here before making their decision :
