The Ultimate Golden Ticket Lottery Campaign

Welcome to the RHDJapan blog and this very special post in which will be unveiling The Ultimate Golden Ticket Lottery Campaign. This will be unlike any of the previous campaigns extended with possibility of winning FREE parts!!

Option Magazine has been a pillar of the tuning scene in Japan since the beginning of JDM tuning. With the release of the January 2012 edition Option Magazine will be turning 30. This is a major milestone for the OG publication and with this comes a major celebration!!

With complete gold lettering and trim along with a female model lacing the cover we knew that this would be a very special issue.  After all these years it is the first time that either of these have been featured on the cover of Option. It turns out that the model is not just a cute face but singer and DJ Suzuki Ami!! When you think 'gold' in the tuning world Top Secret comes to mind first and Smokey's R35 Masterpiece matches perfectly on the cover!!

The cover is great however it is what is on the inside that really matters.  Within this very special issue Option has collaborated with the many JDM manufacturers in order to bring something extra to the many fans of this legacy.  Within each issue of the Birthday edition of Option Magazine there is a form included that will allow for the chance to win one of many different prizes!

The many customers of RHDJapan have been eager to support the many high-quality JDM manufacturers/brands featured within Option and the publication as well. As we are always looking to bring more of Japan to the world the RHDJapan team would like to provide the opportunity for our customers to also participate in this celebration!!

Like all Option magazines they are in limited print, once they are sold out this campaign will no longer be available. For those who would like to give it a shot can purchase the issue here
