    Hi all,

    What the easiest way to identity a Spec C Vs Spec C type RA 2005?

    Engine and gearbox codes are both the same. Can you tell from the Option Code?

    Thanks

    I think the colour of the interior played a part in what exact model it is through the years amongst other subtle details. RA black interior with various pink suspension parts and different (enkei?) wheels. Spec C with gold STi wheels etc?

    Thank you. Is there anyway you know of to identify it from the Option Code?

    Model GDBF4FH (Could be Spec C or Type RA)
    Option Code 91H (Don't know?)
    Engine Type EJ207DG8ER
    Transmission TY856WB7JA

    Cheers

    Awesome, thank you.

    Out of interest, how can you tell? By the Option code? are all Type RA's 91H?

    Thanks

    Thing that was throwing me is the vehicle has gold wheels that look like BBS' rather than the Enkei and the auction sheet only says Spec C and doesn't mention Type RA. Maybe a mistake by the auction house?

    A previous auction sheet from 2009 DOES show it as a Type RA.

    My concern was that it had been cloned in Japan.

    Model code & option code combination. But it changes depending on model/year:thumb
