About

Import Insider (II) is an online magazine and community for import car & motorcycle enthusiasts. The portal aims to collect, explore, as well as share useful tips, news, tutorials and information on import cars, motorcycles and tuning. We hope that everyone will find something here that is useful and interesting.

REASONS BEHIND IMPORT INSIDER
II was started in 2009 by Hans Desjarlais, after he sold his JDM engine import company and decided to offer advice and tips for people looking to buy a Japanese (JDM) engine. Since he had an insiders look in the industry he can tell you what to look for and what to avoid .

II’s articles are written by talented import car enthusiasts from around the globe. There is a high emphasis on quality, comprehensiveness, uniqueness and usefulness in every published piece.
