Oh, gawd - where to begin...
 

Maibatsu Penumbra (Mitsubishi Eclipse GS):
 
 
 
 
Zirconium Stratum (Nissan Skyline R32 Wagon):
 
 
 
 
Karin Futo (Toyota Corolla Levin AE86):
 
 
 
 
Vulcar Warrener (Nissan Skyline C10):
 
 
 
 
Karin Sultan RS (Honda Civic ES Sedan):
 
 
 
 
Annis Elegy RH8 (Nissan GT-R):
 

 
 
Bravado Banshee (Mazda RX-7 FD):




(last one's a bit of a stretch, admittedly, but the front's clearly borrowed from a Mazda, and it's the nearest substitute until R* gets their act together, and adds the ZR-350 from San Andreas... ;) )

 

Yeah I'm doing the same with my two Banshee's and Banshee 900R and making them into the ZR-350 until Rockstar add it in

Well there are no JDM cars in the game, so what's there to appreciate?

By what definition? Because I would say the Elegy retro/Skyline GTR is a staple of JDM culture.

JDM is Japanese Domestic Market. How i understand is that a car counts as jdm when it is right hand drive, not "detuned" to meet regulations in USA and fitted with japanese branded parts. Seeing that all cars are left hand in gta, easily bought from a american website and fitted with los santos customs parts that god knows what brand they are makes them not jdm, just tuners.

JDM means 'Japanese Domestic Market'. A car built in, for, and sold in the Japanese market. A Skyline is JDM. An Titan is not. The only car that could arguably be called JDM in GTA 5 is the Elegy Retro, and even that is debatable given the fact it's LHD and implied to be a modifed Elegy RH8 which was based on a US market R35. And we don't know if earlier Elegys were sold in the GTA USA.

Plot twist: in the GTA universe, all countries use left-hand drive cars. :beerhat:

...dubious attempts at humour aside, I did laugh when someone described the Banshee 900R and Sultan RS as 'the JDM update' - and when someone else pointed out that, at the very least, the Banshee certainly isn't JDM, being mostly Viper, their response was 'well, JDM-style, then'.

 

 

'JDM-style'.

Since the term 'tuner' fell out of fashion in 2007 or so, people have taken to calling anything that would've been called a tuner in 2003 'JDM'. It's only a matter of time until stanced Golfs and 3ers are classified as JDM style.

...see, it's already complicated enough with the 3D era/HD era separation, without troublemakers like you throwing the 2D era into the mix - !!  :panic:

Nice to see the Elegy Retro Custom finally make an appearance in this thread, though - still my favourite thing R*'s ever added to GTAO:

Also got me to revisit my trusty 'old' (well, from 2013! ;)) RH8 - hadn't used it in a while, but it's still just so very, very nice overall:

What are the odds R* adds some more iconic motors (perhaps later this year, even) to go alongside the Elegy Retro? I needs mah proper RX-7 FD (sorry, but I'm just too angry and bitter at this point to do the whole 'put the Toyko Drift decals on the 900R and squint really hard' thing), A80 Supra, ZR2 300ZX, etc., dagnabbit! :p

JDM used to mean something different when I was a lad (not having a dig at anyone, just sayin)

 

JDM used to refer to parts (not cars) that were only available to the Japanese domestic market, be it factory made or affiliated (you could buy a full TRD Toyota or Mugen Honda straight from the dealership with full warranty, and manufacturers themselves often made aftermarket or optional bumpers, spoilers etc and performance parts). Converting your US/Euro spec Japanese car to Japanese spec was also considered JDM, things like mirrors mounted halfway down the hood, tow hooks, bumpers and replacing English text with kanji/kana. The only time I'd call a Euro car JDM is if it's been modified to Japanese spec, it's irrelevant what it looks like because JDM isn't a 'style'; it's a mode (it's what you do rather than what the end result looks like). Nowadays it's tagged onto anything that's Japanese or that's modded in a style that originated in Japan. Bosozoku is not JDM, vip is not JDM, stickerbomb is not JDM, track/drift/time attack look could be but only if you're using JDM parts. 

 

Obviously I am wrong because time moves on without me and JDM means something different to what it did 15 years ago, it's just hard adjusting  :cry:
