Re: what version is my car

If you have a WRX E then it was manufactured late '97 - early '98. Only STi's were referred to with a version number, not the WRX's

Generally speaking the relationship goes thus;

V1 STi = WRX B
V2 STi = WRX C
V3 STi = WRX D
V4 STi = WRX E
V5 STi = WRX F
V6 STi = WRX G

Face lift cars were from late '96 onwards (so V3, not V4) so anything from WRX D on is a facelift model. Also if you do have a WRX E then your car has 276 Bhp, not 248 Bhp. All post face lift models came with the uprated engine producing 276 Bhp same as the STi, though with less torque.
