    I'm wondering if anyone on here can help me locate a Honda Odyssey RB1 front bumper. I stupidly had a crash in the car last week and now have a knackered front bumper.

    I need the whole front bumper for an RB1 Odyssey. Holdcroft Honda couldn't get hold of the part for me so now I'm trying all the avenues I can think of. The usual parts supplier that I use in Japan can't get hold of the part and by the looks of it, I might have to go with a second hand part from buyee or elsewhere.

    Does anyone know of any importers or parts specialists who can help me out? The part number is 71101-SFE-900ZD.

    Any help anyone can give me would be really appreciated. There's also a lesson here, don't CRASH YOUR IMPORTED CAR!!! :Sobbing:

    Did this get resolved? They new MOT rules coming into force soon are much more stringent about things like the engine management light...and bumpers being in good condition. If someone here has as a lot of land, like a farmer, he or she could do a lot of community good (and make profit) by storing a few JDM models for parts. They are dirt cheap to buy in Japan (sometimes less than £1000, and so shipping and collection would be the only other cost) since an IVA test and registration wouldn't be needed, I imagine. It would also cause a spiral in ownership because the lack of a part can be terminal, and this puts people off buying an import.

    I got the bumper repaired in the end as the damage was not too bad. Although I could have got a new bumper from Japan the cost was a little extortionate. I've found a few good sites now with https://www.croooober.com/ being my site of choice. The parts are cheap as chips with only the shipping pushing the price up. Have ordered a number of pieces like front lights and have opted for container ship shipping (to keep the cost down).

    Someone in this country could really make a good business out of it but I guess its all down to supply and demand, the most popular JDM cars in the UK still seem to be performance saloons and coupes (Skyline etc) with only the Nissan Elgrand becoming more popular in the last 5 years.

    I don't know if it's just me (getting old) but everyone these days seems to treat cars like white goods so just go for leases which they swap or give back after three years!!!!
