Default

of interest is that these cars are NOT built sequentially, but in batches. so they will have built 4-5 red ones, one day then a couple of green the next, but you cannot say that 203801 was built after 203800, unless you look at the production dates.



oh btw, if you look at the last 6 of the vin it tells you the year. 2xxxxx is a 93, 3xxxxx is a 94, and 4xxxxx is 95. the jdm vins follow this too.



fd3s-2xxxxxx is a 12-91 to 6-93? car, fd3s-50000+ is a 99spec, i'm not sure where 3, and 4 break
