JDM Fits - pics and finds in Japan

Raised Fit? All of the fits in Akita up north looked taller than normal. Maybe for the snow?

More to come, uploading from my phone on the Shinkansen.

The cup/phone holder (SY-H4) should still fit the US version. Someone else on the forums ordered it and I believe it connects to the part that flips outward on the existing cupholder.

I've got the phone holder that fits in the cup holder for sale, if anyone is interested. As for the cup holder in the vent, those are for right hand drive Fits, afaik.

Thanks for the photo. We plan on going to Japan later this year and I should keep my eyes open for Fit stuff while there.

As for the raised car it does look like there's a big gap between the wheels and the wheel well. I tried blowing up the photo to check tire size but lost resolution. Do you remember the tire size? Was it really raised or did somebody just have small tires? The actual bottom of the car doesn't really appear farther off the road than on my Fit. You'd think if they did a raised version it would be available in other places. One of my hesitations about buying a Fit was living in the northern USA and what looked to me to be little clearance under the car when driving down a road with an ice ridge running down the middle kissing that really sturdy splash shield we read so much about on this forum.

​​​​​​Not sure if the tire size is different than our stock size. But there is something clearly different.

Hybrid
a friend of mine works at a Honda dealership here and can potentially order some JDM factory accessories. More pics to follow.

It is DRL and fog lights. In Germany the highest trim level "Elegance" comes with these lights, but you can't turn on both at the same time as the DRL will shut off as soon as you activate the fogs or headlights.

They range from 14 to 16 inches. The hybrid and RS models come standard with 16 inch rims.

Cool thread. I think Belch said the options for a Fit in Japan take a couple of hours to go through. Japanese people are diligent and will be ok with all the options. North Americans might throw up their hands and walk away.

Maybe North Americans can't handle that many options. If you like options Japan is cool that way. I hope that in the future we can do the same online and build a custom car.

That is the same as here in North America.
