Japanese Domestic Market. The "domestic" there means that it is Japanese parts made for the Japanese market (some Americans seem to be confused and think that it means Japanese parts made for the US market.) That's parts that have to be ordered from Japan, because they were never intended for any market other than Japan. Not every Japanese part is JDM. Most people who toss the term "JDM" around are using it wrong.*DM applies to parts from and for ANY country. So you've got USDM, KDM, and...well, I guess with the EU, it would be EDM rather than individual countries, or maybe not, I'm not sure on that one.

Japanese domestic market.JDM sells Japanese products and engines, which are different from the American models.JDM engines have more power because Japan does not have the same emissions inspections.

As some have already mentioned here, it's Japanese Domestic Market as far as parts. However, this has now been also "made" into an "auto style" if you'd want to call in that. In other words, "JDM-styled" cars can be just about any Japanese-made vehicle (even mini-vans and micro-compacts) that's been modified to reflect the different parts that can be added to reflect the car culture or following for that particular brand in Japan. In a way, some of these cars reflect a more simpler approach to design and purpose than the "ricer" stage that have permeated the car scene since the "Fast & Furious" movies came into being.
