Hi all, I am going to view a 2005 WRX tomorrow, never owned one before.

The guy says its an import, other than if he proves it by the way of paperwork is there anyway I would easily tell? Chassis number or anything on the motor that may be a tell tail sign please?

uk and jdm vin numbers are totaly different in composition, so pretty easy to tell from that.

UK has 17 digits, letters and numbers
