Vin number should be on your v5c paperwork or if you look on the passenger side of your car from the outside in 

it should be in a rectangle block between dashboard and windscreen

The chassis/vin number is stamped on the top of bulk head above the clutch fluid reservoir.

The silver id plate has.... model , trim , option , engine and gearbox codes. Basically everything needed to identify what parts are fitted to the chassis from the factory

It's a regular WRX sedan in silver.

Manufactured in June 1995.

From the factory it would have electric windows, central locking & aircon but no ABS.

No. That's the correct engine code for the car with that VIN number, model code & option code.

That's way out of date & I've not got round to updating it.

This is much more accurate. Has EU/UK/AUS cars in also
