Hey everyone,

Im new to both the forum and the impreza scene.....i suppose better late

From the Type R/RA specs list the model code GC8F27D

249.4 lb ft @ 4000rpm (non Sti)

Well, the car is what you think it is but not sure at all about the interior. Doesn't look right for that model, though I'm not sure what the non STi Ltd's came with. The STi's came with the blue seats with STi stitching. I'll have a look around see what i can dig up.

I dont know to be honest, it looks like a version 3 but I thought that the v3 didnt come with

the roof scoop?

Could it possibly be a 3dr type r version of the RA?

It also has a prodrive spoiler with the breaklight along the top bar instead of

on the bottom resting on the bootlid.

Don't get me started on that 2 door type RA myth.

There is a Type R (version 4) that has a couple of RA bits on it, but it is not a 2 door Type RA. Anyhow, that Applied Model Code is for the WRX Type R, not the so called 2 door Type RA that Subaru say they never made. I have an e-mail from them confirming that.


Quick edit as I can confirm that, as you suspect, it is a version 3 interior. A few of those cars have a slightly different Applied Model Code (GC8E27D rather than GC8E2DD) that identifies it as having a couple of bits (and missing bits) that correspond with the Type RA. It aint one though.

Your car, if the code is correct, is definitely a version 5 (the F in the code denotes that) but with a retro fitted rear wing, front bumper and interior.
