Parallel imported or recon (reconditioned) cars have been a part of (read: plagued) the Malaysian automotive industry for as long as the industry existed. Many have turned to these unauthorised and unofficial distributors for their significantly lower car prices – it’s not unusual to see grey import cars being 30 to 40% cheaper than officially imported cars.
