Question jdm and other versions?

I have a 99 sti (version 5) and its speedometer has readings up to 180 kmph. But my friend has the same version of STI which has readings up to 260 kmph. Is this a difference between JDM and other version?

and also, are there any differences of the performance between the JDM version and the rest of the versions ? how do I find out whether my car is a JDM or not?

your car is JDM.

As for the 260 km/h clocks, they are and aftermarket upgrade available from STi. They don't come with them standard as all Japanese cars are restricted to 180 Km/h by law.
