Is there a way of knowing if your car is a "R" series by the vin number? or any other identification besides badges? I understand that R wagons came in red or black, 17" Volans, traction control, I starting to think that the 96 Turbo 850 sportwagon might be an R, any help would be appreciated, if all else falis i'm sure a dealership could help me.

Re: 1996 850R (turbosportwagon)

The VIN for a R wagon will have a 58 in it, at least for US bound cars. I'm sure it's the same up there in Canada. YV1LW<B>58</B>...........I believe Turbo wagons have 57 in the VIN.<p>Hope this info helps.

For what it is worth the VIN on my R begins with YV1LS500. If I recall correctly, 50 indicates the 247hp turbo motor.<p>Cheers,<br>
