Under the bond on the strut top you'll find a plate with the vin code.

It will start GC8

Ive just got one in the 53 c rally blue which they didn't do on the standard car so that's a give away on the 96 car not sure about white though I'm sure it was only v- limited aswell .

Roof scoop is only on the STI V-limited, not the WRX
