    List of JDM vins

    Hey folks, I thought I ought to share my list of VIN's, useful for finding parts, and how to decode JDM applied models. I've collected these other the years and it's real handy when you say, need to find a single turbo breather pipe for ya single turbo conversion, but you have no JDM vin!

    What's not so useful is the face that a lot of these vins are getting old now, and parts availability is evaporating at an alarming rate, so this list is becoming less and less useful. Ah well, what can ya do...

    I've listed applied model numbers too, hopefully you'll be able to use applied model numbers to determin the true model of a car.

    For Legacy's, lets take my Beast as an example

    G=2nd Gen wagon, with touring roof, or "stepped roof"
    5=2L 4WD
    C=3rd chassis revision for the BG
    5=5 door (wagon boot counted as a door)
    ED=GTB Limited Manual

    Now with more detail

    Digit 1, B=Legacy (Yes, all outbacks are legacy's, fight me), G=Impreza, S=Forester
    Digit 2, C=1st gen sedan, F=First gen wagon with touring roof, J=first gen wagon with flat roof. D=2nd gen sedan, G=2nd gen wagon with touring roof, K=second gen wagon with flat roof. E=3rd gen sedan, H=3rd gen wagon. L=4th gen sedan, P=4th gen wagon.
    Digit 3, 2=1.8 FWD, 3=1.8 4WD, 4=2L FWD, 5=2L 4WD, 6=2.2 FWD, 7=2.2 4WD, 9=2.5L 4WD, E=3.0L 4WD.
    Digit 4, Chassis revision. First get A/B are prefacelift, C/D are facelift. Second gen A is prefacelift, B/C facelift. Third gen A/B/C is pre facelift, D is facelift.
    Digit 5, Doors. 4=4 door sedan, 5=5 door wagon.
    Digits 6/7, Model code. I only know a few:

    For turbos:
    Digit 6, 9=GT, 8=RS, 7=RS-R, C=GTB, E=GTB LTD
    Digit 7, P=Auto, D=Maunual
    So if you had an Auto RS 2nd gen, it'd be 8P
    If you had a manual GTB, it'd be CD
    4R = 1st gen Ti
    6F = 1st gen VZ-R, 2nd gen TS-R - In other words the DOHC 2L performance model
    AE = 2nd gen 250T

    Some tips for imprezas:


    C=First gen sedan
    8=2L AWD
    E=Version 4, or 5th revision
    4=4 door sedan

    Now with more detail, specifically on the turbo GC/GF

    Digit 1, G=Impreza
    Digit 2 C=first gen sedan, F=first gen wagon, D=2nd gen sedan, G=Second gen wagon, E=3rd gen sedan, H=3rd gen wagon (hatch? 3rd gen gets confusing as fuck with differences for wide body and such)
    Digit 3 8=2L AWD, this will be the same on all turbo GC/GF's
    Digit 4 A=Version 0, B=Version 1, C=V2, D=V3, E=V4, F=V5, G=V6
    Digit 5 4=4 door sedan, 2=2 door coupe, 5=5door wagon
    Digit 6 and 7, 8D = WRX, 7D=WRX RA, ED=STi, DD=STi RA, there's a few other turbo ones though, many different grades of WRX, but I've forgotten. Digit 7 like the legacy's is P for auto, D for manual.

    Additional notes:
    The GC8 Coupe was a weird car, in that, they called all of them simply "Type R", but there were many different sub sub models. The reality is that the WRX RA, STi, and STi RA, were all available as a coupe, and all badged as just "Type R" at least for the STi's. So if yo have a type R, you can find out what model it is by looking at the last 2 digits of the applied model, as they are the same over 2-door and 4-door.

    And lastly, a little list of vins I have compiled, very useful for ordering genuine parts, feel free to add to it as you find them!
