    I have been eyeing up some Mugen bits for my 8th Generation Tourer, and found the prices varying from Mugen authorised and non authorised sellers. I wanted to fit those parts myself and save a sizeable chunk of dosh in the process and additionally it gives me the satisfaction I have fitted them on my car.However reading between the lines and scanning the fine print and to question why there was a disparity of prices?

    It not until I read the below my doubts were confirmed.

    Mugen Parts Warranty
    No Mugen part has any form of warranty, unless supplied and fitted by one of the official UK Mugen retailers Links - Mugen Euro

    Any part bought over the counter and fitted elsewhere will not be covered under warranty by Mugen.

    Now you know where you stand, on that basis for me mugen if off the list , Honda genuine Accessories at least have a years of warranty and three years when fitted to a new car at the time of PDI.

    What if I buy Mugen product from King Motorsports, which is an official supplier of Mugen products in the USA? No warranty will be given here is the UK?

    Yes that is correct. You need to buy it here and from a authorise Mugen dealer and they will have to fit it too.

    The warranty is clear cut in that sense.

    Okay. All clear on this point.
    It's only one advantage buying from US - cheaper.

    I would get all my Mugen stuff from Matt at Injection Imports. They come straight from Japan and are well priced.
    Obviously no warranty but if there are bits for your car, he will know about it
