I was looking into the Japanese manufacturer links and ran across Gear aerokits. I have tried to contact this vendor a few times and have had no luck. Emails seem to be out of the question. I would make the international call but I am hesitant that there would be somewhat of a language barrier. This may politically incorrect for this assumption but I do not speak a word of japanese. What should I do?
Are there any suggestions as to how I can acquire a Gear Aerokit?

Just to let you (and others who want JDM bodykits for their cars) know, but it is quite simple to get pretty much ANY body part from Japan, but it does all come down to one thing: money. Shipping will be the killer, as it is not cheap to package the body panels such that they will not be damaged during their trip across the seas. In most cases, shipping a four piece body kit (front bumper, two side skirts, and one rear bumper) from Japan to California can run $600-900+ alone! Of course, then there's also the wait. Many of the unique body kit manufactures in Japan are sometimes just small shops that don't have huge stock on hand. So they make your part by hand when you order it. Then they ship it to the shipper. Then the shipper packages everything and ships it out. Then the parts take a nice cruise across the Pacific. Then they come into port and have to go through customs...etc etc. You can see how it the $$ and time can add up. Sometimes it is worth going through all the trouble though because you end up with a quality part that is beautifully-made and extraordinarily-unique. But sometimes, it really ISN'T worth all that time and money. It really is up to you to decide whether it is worth it or not. If you wanted ANYTHING from Japan, feel free to ask me. I'm also heading over there for Tokyo Auto Salon and will probably see what sort of new channels I can open up....
