New member with old car!!!!

Hi to all current members.....been looking around the net for years now at sites like this and thought I had better join up!!

Not new to Scoobies.....have had 6....still have 3.

Have a very nice N reg which I have now stored away and am trying to get full details as to exactly what it is.

Sold to me 5 years ago as a WRX sti Ra 555 limited edition but looking at all of the different specs available I am confused to the exact spec.

Have looked at sooooooo much on the tinter net now my brain is fryed!!!

Some friendly advice would be helpful......it is stored at my parents 150 miles away but I have photos, the vin plate details and a great dad who is very willing to keep popping out to the garage to have a play with it.

Vin plate details....
Applied Model: GC8C48D Option Code: BJ
Engine Type: EJ20GDW4HE Transmission Type: TY752VB3FA
Colour Code: 406 Trim Code: 523

All quite confusing as it does not fully match anything.....worst of all it should be Silver.....but is blue with no signs of a respray and I used to spray cars for a living so I know what to look for......it's genuine or the best job in the world!!

As I say your help would be very much appreciated.

Cheers Andrew

Hi, thanks for the reply......now that's what I think....but all the toys it has suggests it is not.....and they all look genuine fitment!! Has IC water spray, pop up roof vent, speedline wheels, nardi steering wheel, short box, coms aerial, rear wiper and all the STI bits a man could want under the bonnet. It also goes like hell in the night.....I mean really fast.....much faster than other Scoobies I have owned/driven. I am beginning to think the plate on the car is wrong....it's supposed to be Silver and has always been Blue!!! Cheers Andrew
