Notification: NISMO Aero Parts BCNR33 / BNR34

Greetings from the RHDJapan blog. It has come to our attention that there has been an abrupt stop on orders for most Aero type parts for BCNR33 and BNR34 from NISMO. As most are already aware these parts have been experiencing continual back orders for a couple years now. Along with limit on production ability some items have experienced multiple push backs on expected production time and increasing costs Nismo has decided to decline accepting of orders until further notice.

Some items may be available again by early 2024 while others may have over 4 year wait until current backorders are cleared.
