Some people were wondering what the GTO badge looks like in Japan. Well, 8 weeks and $90 and here's what it looks like. Kevin in NC had them shipped through England. Here's a green and red VR4 with them. Thanks again to Eric for the great pics.

How can I get one of those?! Those are Awesome! The letters look a little bit thicker and larger. What is that "MR" on the back of the second picture.

Is the "MR" some kind of Japanese designation? Why do they use English letters on their cars in Japan?

Yes, Kevin got that bumper from a shop and it's from Japan. I beleive that's a AWD N/A or the Twin Turbo with limited options.

Kevin may be getting more. You have to know someone that speaks a little Japanese. :)

Here's a closeup of the letters:

Oh, and to clarify, the MR is one of the Twin Turbo models, but doesn't have the AWS and a few other options. The SR is the NA. And the GTO (with no other designation) is the full options package.

The MR is an AWD twin turbo GTO with no extra stuff like the normal GTO TT has
I have only seen one MR in the UK and it was a nice dark blue one

Nope its not real :) The real MR has the steering wheel on the same side as the jap GTO ;)

Yes, that's SteveVR4's old exhaust. I've never been able to find the HKS model though. Might be an older model. No rice comments yet?? Surprising.

The "MR" has a bigger cannon than you sticking out the back ;)
Speaking of Steve do you know if he has a new email addy for his new shop? I'd like to talk to him about my 60K maint (how much it is, how long it takes, etc.) but don't want to send an email if it's not going to get a response...

That isn't a real MR right? Just a VR4 with a MR badge for whatever reason?
It's not a real MR as in the whole car, but the entire rear fascia and the GTO lettering are REAL and directly imported from Japan. The MR badging was not applied to the rear end, an entire MR rear end was applied to a US VR-4. The GTO lettering is that which is used on the GTO's in Japan as well.

Besides, a VR-4 is a REAL GTO anyway... It's just got left drive and US spec glass, etc, to meet US standards, but it's still a GTO...
