Can I view TMG's ISO certificate?

How do I find sport parts and motorsport accessories?
Toyota Motorsport GmbH (TMG) has taken on a new role and as a result we are no longer in a position to market tuning products directly ourselves. We can therefore no longer supply parts directly.
In case you require spare parts for your MR2 Turbo, Yaris P1 compressor, Lexus IS or RX compressor, you can ask your dealer to contact TMG directly.
For TRD parts from Japan, please contact one of the European distributors listed on this link: http://www.trdparts.jp/english/distributor.html
For TRD parts from the United States please contact: http://www.trdusa.com/contactus.cfm
We apologise for any inconvenience.

What does TMG charge for its services?
Is TMG only offering motorsport services?
No. TMG is a high performance centre for design, development and production in a wide range of sectors. TMG started life in the world of top-level motorsport but during that time already diversified into road car tuning. Now TMG’s facilities are available for the aerospace, automotive, medical and consumer industries and we provide a first-class service for original equipment manufacturers, prototype developers and mass-market product developers alike. We offer a flexible service tuned exactly to your needs, without limits on industry or speciality.
How can I find out the detailed specifications of your machines?
The main specifications of our machines and services are listed on the right of each departmental page. However, for practical reasons it is not desirable to provide comprehensive lists of all specifications. If you require more detailed information, please do not hesitate to get in contact with one of our representatives. We will be happy to provide more detailed information for serious inquiries.
How can I verify my ex-TTE rally car?
Please contact us with the car's registration, VIN number and original German registration documents. Based on that information, we can normally trace the history of a TTE rally car.
Can I rent TMG’s facilities and bring my own engineers?
Yes. Our flexible packages allow for bespoke levels of service, so we can provide a solution identical to your needs. However, please note that due to the unique nature of many of our machines, in most cases TMG machine operators must be used to ensure reliable and safe testing.
Does TMG only offer services to other Toyota companies?
No. TMG’s services are available to any external company or organisation.
Do your representatives speak different languages?
English is the official language of TMG but as a multi-national company we offer representatives fluent in most European languages, as well as Japanese. Feel free to contact us in your native language and we will do our best to reply in your language.
Who are TMG’s clients?
TMG has a growing portfolio of automotive and motorsport clients, in addition to its in-house development work for Toyota Motor Corporation. However, confidentiality obligations prevent us from revealing the identity of our clients.
