Who are Planet Performance UK?
Planet Performance may be a name unfamiliar to you, but we have been trading since 2002, and have thousands of satisfied customers under our belt.
Our flagship store, FunkyPower.Com, is highly regarded amongst the European Japanese car enthusiast community as THE place to buy performance & styling parts.
Funky Power is run by Japanese car enthusiasts with the aim of providing those hard-to-get parts at a sensible price - with fast delivery thrown-in for good measure!
We keep our fingers on the pulse of the Japanese performance car scene and consider ourselves specialists in this field, especially when it comes to all things Honda!
Our director, Faizan Aatif, was awarded a Shell LiveWire Entrepreneur of the Year Award in 2005, and the business made it to the national finals which is a testament to the hard work and determination which has got us where we are today.
Over the years, we have built up a reputation that is second to none in this industry, and it is thanks to this reputation and commitment to the Honda brand that we have teamed up with our friends at Skunk2 / Group-A Autosports to launch Skunk2.co.uk, the home of Skunk2 Racing in the United Kingdom.
With offices in the UK, Australia, Japan, Hong Kong, Canada and throughout the United States & Europe, we are able to source pretty much anything and everything you could ever need for your pride and joy, at a price which isn't going to break the bank!
We are proud to boast that we are Europe's largest distributor of AEM, DC Sports, ACT Clutch, Stoptech brakes, NRG, Energy Suspension, Skunk2 and Tenzo-R products, and deal directly with all the major giants in this industry so you can rest easy that your purchase will be backed-up with full after-sales support and the manufacturer's warranty where applicable.
Don't trust "bedroom businesses" that you can only contact by email and who have nothing to lose. We hold over £300,000.00 worth of stock at any given time and aim to process all orders quickly and with minimal fuss.
We will continue in our passionate endeavour to ensure we remain Europe's largest distributor of Japanese performance parts & accessories.

Not just another faceless company...
We look forward to serving you, and like nothing more than to talk cars with likeminded petrolheads!
