What Legacy do I have? Deciphering codes

Recommended Posts

Some advice on working out what my Legacy is please.

What I know so far: It's a GT stationwagon with a 2.5 engine and is an auto.

It's a B4, 2007 year, 250 BHP.

And that's about all I know. I think it's pretty unusual in that it has a big sunroof and wash jets on the headlights.

The codes are:

VIN: JF1BP9KV57G054026

Applied model: BP9DKFV

Option code: 4F

Trim code: D20

Engine type: EJ255LLDLE

I've tried all of the online code identifiers but cannot get more info than this.

Any advice on what/where to try would be great, thanks.

You listed out all the info, what other info do you want?

I'm wondering if it's a variant of some kind from the 2.5 GT, wondering whether that's related to the washers on the headlights and whether there are any other unusual aspects you guys may now about related to this, also when I put the model code in the deciphering site, it doesn't recognise it, so I still haven't found out definitively what this model is. Also wondering what the 4F option code refers to.

Right, so when it says 'Subaru B-4' on the ID plate, any idea what it is referring to? Cheers.

What's your plate if you don't mind sharing?

 

Wonder if it's an Aussie import. The few NZ new 2.5GT/GT Spec B’s don't have the headlight washers, well the 08’s don't atleast.

 

Does the info plate have a vin number that looks more like BP9-xxxxxx?

What you have is a NZ new GT. Hence 2.5L as opposed to 2.0L JDM.

All NZ/AUDM models with HID headlights were equipped with the headlight washers, due to euro specs/requirements I believe. 

 

Were mostly upspec'd hence the sunroof, I'd hazard a guess and say that it also has a McIntosh system and black leather but non-foldable mirrors and non-alloy control arms. 

 

You'd struggle to find a typical JDM chassis number on this...

B4 = sedan

GT = wagon

Surely the Spec B’s had the same headlight washer regs as the GT’s? This is the only one in NZ I've seen over the years with a bit of a thread, notice no headlight washers.

Not sure if I am reading your post correctly but the one in that thread has washers?.. Also I am 99% positive that the car in question is also a Spec.B.

...and a standard grille as opposed to JDM honeycomb.

Yea my bad. Been looking at too many other brands these days with them in the bumper instead of a cutout in the light itself.
