About Us

Welcome to Eighty-Two Performance!

Eighty-Two started in 2019 with one man's dream to contribute in growing the Korean Domestic Market (KDM) in North America. With the rise of KDM sports cars, there was a gap in parts gaining traction overseas and being offered in North America. Eighty-Two was founded to directly connect with Korean manufacturers and retailers to bring the hottest products at the most reasonable prices. Eighty-Two has connected and bartered with many overseas companies to form partnerships or exclusive deals all in pursuit of bringing you, our peers, the best quality parts. In the first year, we have achieved an exclusive contract with GT-9 and became M&S's only Canadian distributor. With more opportunities in sight, we look forward to see what else we can achieve for you. 


The team behind the founding of Eighty-Two comprise of car enthusiasts just like you. While our tastes in cars vary, we all share the same passion of modifying our cars to reflect us.
