Conversation with a lad in the pub last night, regarding my import.

are imports fitted with restrictors under Jap Law?

is it possible that a toyota dealer at mot time would change anything on the car to make it less powerful?

since getting an mot done, the car seems slower!

All cars used in Japan have a 180Kph(112Mph) speed limiter. It's always possible for a dealer to adjust something that affects performance but for an Mot it's unlikely unless the car failed on emmisions and they adjusted something to get a pass.

check this out, they import cars, and are advising that all jap imports are limited to 112mph,

i dont think this can be right as im sure mine has gone alot faster than that! before.
