Notes: In most cases Japanese payment terms are quite strict meaning the FOB invoice must be paid to Japan within 48 hours of the vehicle purchase. If this will not be possible it is very important Drift&Drive is told in advance, so we can make alternative arrangements as a short remittance period is the norm in Japan.
