Tegiwa About Us Header Image.

School friends Luke and Johnny have turned their keen passion for cars into their livelihood and business. It all started out in 2003 whilst the guys were at University together and they decided to purchase a CRX to break. This then snow balled into some more Honda’s being broken and they began to import a few cars too as a bit of a hobby until the pair decided that they could make a business out of it.

It was 2006 when they first took the plunge and officially setup Tegiwa Imports Ltd. Initially the business model revolved around importing performance Honda cars from Japan alongside used parts and wheels onto UK shores. The business developed further when they had some smaller parts like brake stoppers manufactured. However, when the recession hit back in 2009, the market for imported parts soon started to dry up, so the guys turned their hand to dealing aftermarket performance parts.

Fast forward to the modern day, and Tegiwa Imports are now the European distributor for global brands such as Skunk2 Racing, Yellow Speed Racing, K-Tuned, MFactory and Apex Race Parts. With over 150 brands on the website and still rapidly growing, Tegiwa is quickly becoming a household name amongst tuning enthusiasts. Tegiwa now boast a 22 person strong team and continue jumping from strength to strength, with an array of cars known internally as the Tegiwa Fast Fleet, including an endurance spec Honda NSX and BMW M4 GT4. We’re also title sponsors for the 750MC Club Enduro Championship and very much actively involved in the world of motorsport. Learn more about the team that makes Tegiwa what it is below!
