How do you tell if you have a spec b
 
Going to a dealership to look at a subie this weekend and the guy can't tell me if it's a spec b. All the badges were removed and all he knows is he thinks it has a 2.5. It's a 2008. I don't know the difference between the two. Basically i'm looking to see if it's a spec b or just a 2.5GT

and if someone can point out if it might be a limited or one og the 2.5i cars i'd be appreciative

Your job is to convince him its actually a 2.5i

proflashrtist 03-15-2013 04:47 PM

Stop it with this logical thinking.

I'm starting to second guess my car. I am walking outside right now to open the hood. I had new brakes put on yesterday (basically i was to lazy to do it myself and i just got my tax returns so i figured i'd let someone else get dirty) and the mechanic asked me what engine i had in the car. Well the badge says 2.5 on the back. 2.5 GT to be exact so I told him I had the 2.5. He got the brakes and I guess they were wrong so he went back to NAPA and got the correct pair then he told me I had a 3.0 and your website NWSPECB is telling me I have the 3.0...hm.. I have paddle shifters and the tip-tronic shifter on the side, not 6spd.

NWSPECB 03-15-2013 04:54 PM

There is a 3.0 model. Also, the brakes between 2.5i and 2.5gt are different.

Well it's got the paddle shifters, and it says 2.5gt on the back. Well I guess I know what I'm doing with my weekend after looking at the car....i'll be going over every inch of that thing figuring out what all was or wasn't done. ugh.:confused:

Hah no I am going to look at another, however your cars 101 website is making me second guess the one I bought 2 weeks ago. I work about 60 hours a week so I haven't had much time to really go over it.

My current car "says" 2.5GT on back, but the mechanic told me it's a 3.0 and I was a bit dumbfounded that I wouldn't have noticed that. Now I am not sure what made him suggest that, but it made me wonder if something was switched that I didn't know about from the one previous owner.

Your mechanic is also buying parts from NAPA...

Does the car have a hood scoop?
