About Us

Jap Performance Parts was founded in 2005 by Sajid Moghal and his father, Afzal Moghal, dealing in high end aftermarket Japanese tuning parts and spares. Growing up in the motor trade, Sajid’s passion for cars followed suit of his fathers, however expanded to the Japanese performance car market, inevitably leading him to open a business of his own, selling rare models of JDM cars imported directly from Japan.

Sajid travelled to Japan to research the industry, and experience the culture first hand, returning with not only an investment of stock but solid relationships that built the foundations of the business. While Afzal worked on stores and the workshop, maintaining, servicing and repairing, Sajid focused on logistics and sales. The pair specialised in second hand Japanese performance cars, parts and spares. Within 2 years of business the company outgrew their first site, developed to a team of 5 and moved to their current location; Stephenson Way, Crawley. As Jap Performance Parts became more established, new opportunities arose; We have been fortunate enough to feature on an exclusive episode of Wheeler Dealers, Car S.O.S and provided the majority of parts for Fast and Furious 6 .…just to name a few.

In 2008, the company’s Subaru drift car began competing in international championships in countries such as Malta, Dubai, Switzerland, Belarus, Ireland, France and Norway. From there, our range of demo cars grew to a custom built Evo Wagon Sprint Car, an R34 GTR, EVO 10 FQ400 Replica and a Celica GT. Over the years, this family run business welcomed Sajid’s daughters to develop the company’s social media presence and start up the JDM Clothing Store. When his daughters showed interest in learning how the business ran he was more than happy to show them. Since opening, we have become the exclusive and sole distributor of Hardtuned Clothing in the UK and showcased at events up and down the country, such as Japfest and the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

It’s been our promise since 2005 to deliver the highest quality Japanese parts at competitive market prices. Unlike other specialists, Jap Performance Parts stock a large range of parts in store for the convenience of our customers. We stock exclusive and limited edition parts that aren’t always available elsewhere, at least not to the standard we provide; We’re so confident in our quality that we offer a warranty with any used parts bought through us! 

Over the years our international relationships have grown and developed, we now support many large organisations from all sectors of the automobile industry.  This has led to us forming a new division, called the JPP Concierge Service.  This service is dedicated to sourcing rare parts from across the globe to supply to our clients directly.  

As always, JPP is setting the trends in demo cars, as for 2023 we have two projects in the pipeline;  a Yaris GR track day car and a custom build Datsun 240z.
