    Who went and thought calling a car company "DaEwO" was a good idea? Their cars don't look that bad tho.

    need some help for anyone good at determining what distinguishes different market cars

    so as you may already know the 200BX, Covet, 89 Pessima, and 96 Pessima all have JDM interiors. however im not very well informed on what else constitutes a "JDM" car.
    like, im aware they have a rear fog light, but what other regulatory things would i need to create the most accurate experience?

    thanks

    not sure if this is what youre really looking for but maybe fender mirrors on the pessima or a red panel that goes across the trunk that blends in with the taillights

    Metric gauges that limit the speed at 180km/h, inverted wiper and signal stalk, electric windows for the certain models and even on the rare occasion, display screen.

    The mentioned by @JCX034 180 km/h gauges are a regulation, as well as an electronic speed limiter set at 180 and obviously the quickly ignored 276 hp power limit. They were introduced in 1988, and the power limit is the only that's been officially lifted, with it disappearing in 2004. Apart from that many Japanese sports cars made after around that era don't feature the 180 km/h gauges anymore.

    Further reading.

    Also if you're going for full immersion, keep in mind that many manufacturers prefer to stay under 2 liters on their engines because of higher taxes for cars over 2 liters, and that the Japanese prefer automatics over manuals apart from trucks and sports/sporty cars.

    IIRC some/most JDM cars have yellow fog lights (apparently they penetrate fog better than standard ones), however I don't know if it's a regulation or not.

    180kmh speed limiter, lack of 5mph bumpers, lack of airbags as they werent mandatory, engine sizes and variants can differ due to california's strict emission regulations. Different market so JDM cars were more likely to have a load more variants. Take the ES/EM civic for example. JDM had the entire fiero line up, came in 4WD with an optional CVT. 3 different engines, a sport package with sportier interior trim, white gauge faces and a bodykit. You also have different wheel styles as not everyone gets the same wheels/hubcaps. You also have the different chime settings. The US and GCC spec cars (that I know of) have five-six chimes key in the ignition when door open, five beeps when the key is turned to auxiliary, going over 120kmh (GCC) taking key out of the ignition when lights are on. JDM however have 1-2 chimes. Key in the ignition when door is open and probably lights on when key is taken out of the ignition. There's also a different colour scheme available (barely happens) and a few different liveries and sometimes bodykits as previously mentioned. There are also yellow fog lights and lack of amber signals and a kmh gauge

    yeah.

    I dont know if this has been said or something but most jdm cars have clear taillights to go with regulations

    As seen here on a jdm-spec toyota cavalier vs the us-spec chevy cavalier

    I'm just guessing the engine isn't finished yet and the redline is yet to be adjusted.
    Many 80s JDMs had yellow foglights, yes, but they weren't any kinda regulation. It was just a common thing back then, the same thing can be seen on French cars of the era, for example.
    --- Post updated ---
    Again, not regulations. It was just a common design choice on Japanese cars, especially JDM/EDM models during the 90s and 00s.
