Definately looks like a wrx to me mate, the 300 has gold alloys and fog light covers for a start. It would be a bit odd for somebody to change it all.

Your VIN number looks like a UK WRX. If it has a rear wash wiper, it's a Jap Import.

This was the first 8 digits on my 2002 UK WRX VIN. J F 1 G D A K D.

Could be an import from europe. Some Impreza's came into the UK via Holland and Belgium with a standard european warranty valid for only 12 months.
