A few years ago I wrote THIS webpage about the Applied model codes. The company I wrote it for has since gone bust so the page may vanish from the web any day, so enjoy it while you can!

Since writing that page I've been able to decode most common Subaru codes from memory. Sometime I feel like a right geek!

I hope to meet up with Tlag and Bip next week to talk about a new website for their business. If they want that page (and the gearbox code page also on that site) I will dig out the original source code and rewrite it for them. If they're not interested maybe we can talk about hosting it on here somewhere? It was a lot of work when I wrote it and it seems a shame to see it vanish when the hosting contract runs out.

Exactly would hate to see something as good as that go to waste and knowing how much work would have gone into it. We would be grateful if they don't want it. But fully understand if they do, so thank you for the offer it comes our way or not :D

If it comes to a dead end and it wont work on SOC I can host it on my side project domain - unlimited space etc just havent got to a point of my own nsite yet but all the functionality / space is there unused so give me a shout and we can sort something out - as you said not good to let it all go to waste

Hey guys I can't seem to find out what type my new Impreza is. I've tried using sites where you input your vin and it would come up with make model type etc, but apparently they won't recognise the full vin or applied code. Can someone tell me if I'm doing something wrong please?

The link I posted at the start of this thread is long dead, but a while ago I did start a new website of my own which was aimed at owners of older JDM Legacys. Once again life got in the way and the project was not finished, but I did manage to trace every Applied Model Code for JDM Legacy Gen 1-3 inc and some Gen 4 too. These are now in an online database here... http://rber.net/appliedmodel.php 

A lot of codes have multiple vehicle results, but some vehicles have additional information about option codes if you click on the results.

This is my own website so it won't vanish if a client goes broke, but additionally it won't be updated unless other projects go cold and I get bored!
