I´d like to buy some parts and accessories.
checked some of the sponsors here, but their range is small or they to not ship to Germany.
I will need:
2 back door cargo net
Oil filter
Air filter
whipper blades
and may be 4 TRD Aloy rims
etc.

I've had good luck with all of them.

Although those whipper blades sound like they'd hurt! ouch.

I personally would go for 5 TRD rims.
Silver are an easy find. Grey good luck. Black, better odds hitting the lottery.
Unless you are best friends with a TRD parts guy.

There is a member selling 5 silver TRDs for $625ish free shipping to a US address some where in the classified here.

The rest of the stuff on your list are an easy order/shipment, except the whipper blades,they are hard to come by.
You can substitute those with wiper blades or wiper blades refills.

I'm ROTFL over here!
haha couldn't resist

I guess that was mean on my part. I couldn't speak a word of German if my life depended on it. So good for him for trying.

HI
have checked with them but negativ.
I found out, that one of the Ebay vendors is offering also shipping to Germany.
I also would like to have a printed repair manual.
none of the listed suppliers are offering it.
all just sell the CD-ROM version.
bye

Hi Werner,

Can't the local Toyota dealership order these parts for you? I know it will take a lot of time to receive them, but it should be possible. I bought extra filters, wipers etc because I read on here that it takes so long to get them.

Grüss von Buchholz in der Nordheide...

Hi voodoobrew
I´ve loaded it down.
so far I had it in bits and pieces, now this is a cpl. version.
But this manual is funny to use, it has no index and no structure.
to find something won´t be easy.
your suggestion to buy parts in Germany.....I am sure they are a bit heavely priced. Thats why I am checking to buy several things from the US.
have read your articles, you are in north-germany now.
still shocked with our petrol-prices???
my FJ is converted to run on LPG-Gas which makes driving cheaper than a Prado-diesel.
thanks for your help
bye werner

Hallo Werner,

I am in a state of culture shock about a lot of things... petrol prices is just one of them. ;) Maybe my life would be better in Bavaria?... I don't know. I found that the natives down there are quite a bit friendlier to Americans than they are here in the north. :( One day at a time...

Well, we just bought a 'new' car. Passat diesel wagon. We got a good deal on it as it was the dealer's demo model. It's nice, with leather, wood trim, higher horsepower, etc. :)

And you are right about things being less expensive in the USA, in general. I finally set up my brand new Apple laptop today, that we bought back in California to save some money. ;)

tschüß!

p.s. how did you get the FJ converted??

Hi Exiled Woman
I believe you live somewhere far north near Hamburg.
some say it´s a nice City but North Germans are in line with the weather, a bit colder. But they are also more liberal than the friendly but conservative South. May be North Germans are pissed by the weather. :)
I´ve never been up to the North, nothing much of interesting things to me.
but I have seen more from the states than from Germany, in fact, I have been almost everywhere in the US and Canada.

How i converted my FJ? you take it to one of the many LPG-Converter and after 3 days you get a real Gas car back, with a 2nd tank underneath. 60 miles cost me now about 17 $, which is very acceptable for a SUV. Meanwhile there are about 3800 LPG Gas-Stations in Germany. 1 Liter is about 0,70 Euro-cent.
the FJ drinks about 10% more on LPG. Since there are more big cars in Northern Germany, there are more LPG-Converters up there. Hence the price for converting is cheaper in the North - about 2500 for a V6.
nevertheless, I hope you enjoy your stay and it´s far better than Baghdad.

Hi Werner,

Yes, I have come to the same conclusion as you... the weather up here is making these people extremely grumpy. It rains ALL the time. Being a native Californian, I am having a very hard time with this... The only other place I've lived is southern Spain -- also very sunny. :) I'd rather live with sunny, jolly conservatives (in lederhosen :bigthumb:) than cold liberals ANY day, and I am somewhat liberal. ;)

Anyway, as to the LPG conversion... wow, that sounds great. I would consider it, but we may sell the FJ here before we return. And if we do keep it, I guess it would not be accepted back in the USA with that conversion. I'd like to get a Land Rover Defender, but those cannot be brought back to the USA. :rawr:

Have you found the parts yet? You need a connection in the USA -- someone who can buy them and send them to you. ;) How have the reactions been to your FJ? I have not seen one here yet!
