If you're in the market for a people mover, you probably need some anchor points installed in your car, right? Here's what you should know about anchors on Japanese Imports:
Every single JDM people mover that we sell comes with 2 FACTORY anchor points, positioned on the left and right middle row seats. And they're ISOFIX on Toyota Estima from 2004 and on Nissan Elgrand from late 2010.
On arrival compliance shop installs anchor point # 3 in the third row on the left. So, when I'm selling a car to you, you have three anchor points by default: two ISOFIX in the middle row and one at the back.
However, we all know #kidshappen and you may need 4 anchors.
In this case, there's absolutely no problem for compliance to install one more anchor point on the right in the third row. Usually I'm happy to cover the cost (unless you're rude to me or if I'm selling under the cost and very upset 😟).
N.B. FOUR is the maximum number of anchor points that compliance shop can install on a Japanese import. Again, left and right only, nothing goes in the middle.
Need 5 or 6? I recommend speaking to engineer Simon Fell from Comptune Engineering. Not sure about the exact cost but be prepared to pay around $1,000 or somewhere there, it's not cheap.
