    Vin # GDB-040476

    G- Impreza
    D- 4D Sedan (2002-2007)
    B- EJ207 2.0L DOHC JDM STI (280bhp/260ft-lbs torque)
    0- WRX STI (2004-2006)
    4- Seat belts with dual air bags
    0- A mathamatical formula that takes all the other characters in the VIN and comes up with a value.
    4- year 2004
    7- automatic awd, '-' can be 6spd manual, postal car depending on the year.
    6- sequential production numbers. Changes yearly, based on the line


    Edited base on link given by sleepoy and the Aus. spec book... (It makes more sense now)

    Btw! When I search the vin# on a JDM list is says: Manufacture date is June 2006 Year (2006.6) I'm not sure why the vin# 4 "line 10" hence year 2004...

    Not 04, most likely the June 2006, additional sensors, different control arm etc. See my wanted to buy post. Thanks a lot.
