Maybe you are already familiar with the term “JDM car” in the automotive world. Often times this car is often associated or synonymous with Japanese words. Sometimes some people also misinterpret it. So what is the JDM car actually? Check out the explanation below.
What is a JDM Car?
The JDM car is a car that is modified using one type of modification flow that is oriented towards Japan. JDM itself stands for “Japanes Domestic Market”. This means that this model is only sold in the Japanese domestic market and not in other countries. So, it is for that reason that many Indonesians create car modifications as closely as possible to Japanese-looking cars. This type of modification is also commonly referred to as the ‘JDM look’ which means that its appearance is similar to a JDM car.
Do Japanese cars currently sold in the market include JDM? The answer is no. Why? Because as previously explained, JDM is only one type of modification flow.
There are many JDM spare parts sold in the market today to be installed in many types of cars. In fact, there are also those who open an auto tuner service that can turn any car into a JDM display. This happens because the JDM style is in great demand with its wide variety of variations.
JDM car characteristics in the automotive world
Actually JDM streams are further classified into two parts, namely Pure JDM and JDM style. Pure JDM uses all components imported directly from Japan. While the JDM style still has components that don’t come from Japan.
The characteristic of the JDM flow is usually the basic color of the car which is not too crowded with the black color attached to the hood. Besides that, JDM cars also have their respective stickers, you know!
If you are a beginner driver, you must use the yellow green arrow-shaped sticker called “Wakaba” and must be used by them for one year after getting your license.
As for expert drivers, you have to use a yellow orange sticker that looks like a leaf or a tear called “Koreisha”. This sticker also indicates that you are an old or old driver.
Well, you know the term JDM car now, right ? How, are you interested in modifying JDM streams too?
