he has one sticker on the back, but hes missing the rear spoiler, shift knob, the type r insignia on the back carpet. and i thought they had a metal vin plate in the engine bay that actually said type r on it which he doesnt have. i might be wrong.

what dont you see??

the rubber shit that they use as sound insulation. ITRs dont have that to save weight. plus all the things that everone has mentioned so far.


However, NO ITR came with A/C that i know of.

this is off teamsol.com

The VIN you entered translates to:
Based on the Vehicle Identification Number, this (Unknown Year Y) Honda (Unknown Grade 1) was number 1,276 to roll off the production line at Suzuka, Japan. It is a 3 Door Hatchback (Manual), (Unknown Type 4), with a (Unknown Engine DC2) engine.


I will keep looking for a site that has more detail
