JDM = Japanese Domestic Market, meaning that the stuff is designed and usually sold only in Japan.

As of the past couple years JDM has been a "fad", "style", "way of life" or what have you. It usually includes a "clean" and less is more approach to styling. (i.e. No stickers, fart canons, neon, chrome, or huge wings)

"Stands for Japanese Domestic Market. It is for car parts. Main compaines are Honda, and Nissan. The reason for JDM is because many import cars such as Civics and Integras have been "detuned" to meet regulations in the United States. Therefore swaping a Japanese engine into an "American" Honda Civic is considered intergration to its truest form.

Many difference that many people don't know is it is seperate from the ricer street racing scene. Many races are on profession tracks. Which many enthusist race in Time Attack. JDM compared to ricers are much cleaner in their styling.
Ricer V. JDM

Ricer Mods:
4 inches no name muffler
17inches Chrome Rims
Clear Altezza Taillights
Clear Cornered Headlights
Cut Springs to lower ride

JDM:
OEM exhausts ( Civics will upgrade to CTR: civic type R exhaust)
16inch JDM rims (Brands such as Volk, Rays, Spoon and etc.)
OEM headlight and taillights
Full Coilover systems

Main Difference is All JDM parts are named brand to ensure performance. Most JDM parts are more expensive because it needs to be imported to be the real deal "

We drive Neons guys, Neons. There is not a JDM thing on our cars other then Glasswars type r lip and its been cut up so that is a Honda insult(which is fine with me). Wheels that are colored are not JDM because muscle car guys have been coloring wheels for years it is nothing new. You do not need to label your car with VIP and JDM because you arent a Chaser, Aristo or a Civic. Just style your car with what you like and dont name it just have your own style. :quotes:

And yes those are Q45 projectors and they are kinda nice.


And just so you know I love the style of Drift or JDM(hate the acronym) "VIP" so here is some REAL of both.
This was a friend of mines R32 Skyline GTST was the first time I had ever driven right hand drive and it is pretty sweet but again the fitment is pretty good but needs to be lower. Note that tan neon in front is mine incase there was a doubt

well i just use the JDM acronym to so that everyone will know right off the bat that i am "into"the less is more styling.i am going simple,clean with top end everything.i have gotten far away from the "oohh thats shiny!!! i want " mind set to" if it doesnt fit with want i want over all plan that i have in mind then it does not get added.

this is what i want my car to look like at this point

Image

JDM is a frame of mind,

:withstupid:

JDM is a style, not necessarily a country of origin. It no longer refers only to imports from Japan, but any car built to be clean and simple. Look at the term rice. It used to mean any Japanese import, regardless of style. Now it is used to describe shitty cars from all countries. That's my analogy at least. Kinda covered both ends of the tuning spectrum in that post huh :lol:



Here's a few shots of my car, per request:

i find it funny that Mztykal's cars popped up 3 times in this thread. the last one he built is in the OP, and teej posted 2 versions of his old 2gn.... Mztykal was the OG of mixing Neons and JDM-style. but i agree with the commentof a Neon isn't JDM, it's not. our cars are domestic, yeah, you can get some export parts, but you're still not JDM. some damn fine looking JDM-inspired Neons and SRTs in this thread though. definitely full of win.

To those arguing what to call it, its called "Car Modding". So my Chrysler grill came from Canada, so that makes it CDM (Canadian Domestic Market) thats dumb. Like I said mod it how you like but dont try and label it as something its not. Some kids take inspiration from Boeing with there big wings but they are not Jet Fighters (for Wenuden) :rofl: and some take inspiration from other outlets but just mod.

Hmmm i think that is open to interpretation,ask five people the same question and you will get six answers.this is from wiki.cause we all know wiki is right :rofl:

Japanese Domestic Market (JDM) is a term for Japan's economic market for Japanese-brand goods, such as automobiles and parts. The term's most common application is to Japanese-brand automobiles built specifically for the Japanese market, i.e., designed and constructed to conform to Japanese vehicle and equipment regulations and to suit Japanese market preferences. JDM vehicles migrate to other markets through ordinary commerce and the grey market.

JDM cars or short "JDMs" were generally limited to 280 PS and a top speed of 180 km/h (~112 mph, via a speed limiter device), mostly due to safety concerns. The 280 PS limit was lifted in 2004. [1] However, the speed limit of 180 km/h is still in effect to this day. In fact, many JDM sports cars have speedometers that only go up to 180 km/h, even though the car would be capable of much higher speeds if it wasn't limited. Some new cars like the Nissan GT-R detect via GPS satellite navigation wether the car is on a japanese race track, and if so, disengage the speed limiter. [2]

JDM vehicles often differ in features and equipment from vehicles sold elsewhere. For example, Honda has produced many different versions of the B18C, B16A and K20A engines for various markets worldwide. Often times, JDMs for instance have stiffer suspension amd improved throttle response, because japanese buyers are thought to visit race tracks more often, maybe due to the limitations and tight street regulations such as mentioned above. For the US/european market versions, some features may be removed in order to stay below a certain pricing goal for the car, such as using a conventional rear suspension instead of a double wishbone suspension and lack of electronic devices like Active Yaw Control. Furthermore, engine power of JDM sports cars is sometimes reduced for the US market to meet stricter emission standards.

There are safety hazards associated with using JDM headlamps in countries where traffic flows along the right side of the road, because JDM headlamps, engineered for use on the left side of the road, fail to light the right-side driver's way safely ahead while blinding oncoming motorists[3]. Nevertheless, primarily due to marketing efforts, JDM headlamps are quite popular.

In automotive culture, JDM refers to a style of modifying automobiles, mainly cars of Japanese origin.[citation needed] The function of components is often preferred[who?] over cosmetic appeal.[citation needed] "True" Japanese Domestic Market components are also preferred[who?] over Japanese aftermarket parts.[citation needed] An example of one such market is the import of used Japanese engines to North America to be put into Honda, Nissan, Toyota, Mazda, Subaru and Mitsubishi sports and street cars for higher performance outputs


anyways here are some more cars
