    Vin numbers on an import

    I wasnt planning on just adding any old digits , i was more interested in wether dvla were happy to use the jdm system in its current format or wether they allocated their own system in order to make it into a 17 digit uk standard , eg maybe have the applied model code in front of the number and include hyphens or something similar

    Vin numbers on an import

    I am not trying to make it something its not i was just trying 5o make sure i put enough information on the forms , i just want to make sure that i am legal and perhaps just as importantly , should i sell it in the future all the correct details are there
  5. I am in the process of importing my car and have been looking at insurance etc Whilst doing this i realised that the car doesnt have the standard 17 character vin so my question is can i make it into a 17 number vin or do i just leave it and only put on the paperwork the 10 digits of the chassis number that i have What do you guys have on your log books? Thanks

    engine change

    i believe it will but unless you happen to have a full turbo car there , ecu , wiring , engine , brakes etc then it is a very expensive swap , probably easier (and cheaper) to buy a turbo since that is what you will be insuring anyway.

    ECU and type?

    i have tried looking into ecu types before so i could get information on mine but it seems like there are a million and one different ecus fitted to the same type of car , i didnt get anywhere , i even tried to start a subject about listing ecus and the car they were fitted to to try and narrow it down but nobody seemed to be that intersted so didnt get anywhere
  10. i think you are quite right , you chose to buy subaru parts for the quality , otherwise you would av gone to halfords or the like , if they want to start 'economising' they need to see that it wont work and the customers will refuse to accept it , maybe then they will see the error of their ways and revert back to quality rather than quality after all it aint a fiesta 1.1 you are buyin bits for is it!

    Chassis Numbering

    i have now found out that my car was the 291st type r to be built , the 84th sonic blue version (yet to be confirmed via another source) excluding any specials which may not have the usual chassis numbering , so i now would like to find out production dates , so if there is anyone out there who may know of any production lists then i would be interested to find out more. heres hoping
  12. is there a list anywhere which tells you when a particular car was made and how many of them were made before yours , i ask because i would be interested to know more about my particular car , i know it is quite an early one but i dont know how early in the production run , not that it makes any difference as to its value it would just be interesting to find out all i can. i do have a book which gives production totals for domestic /export etc but it would only help if i could find out what number subaru gave the first impreza or what number the first type r was. i am sure i am on a hiding to nothing but it would be interesting to know hopefully someone out there may be able to help
