Post '99 Sedan is the BG5 designation, correct?

I have a Navy friend stationed over in Japan and I'm going to have him look for parts over there. Not sure what I want, but I want to make sure I have him looking for the right body style.

I also found the twin headlamp conversion for 96+ cars at Graham Goode. I want to email them to find out more info, but again wanted to make sure I'm talking about the right design.

I think BG5 is the sedan, BG9 is the wagon, but I don't remember where I found that.

Bear in mind that the current Leg' came out earlier in Japan (1998) than in the US, where it appeared in 1999 as a 2000 model-year car. As you have a "'99", it is likely to be the last of the previous model, so if your friend is buying parts for your car, make sure he knows what your car looks like (a '99 in Japan is not the same as a '99 in the US).

Though can't help with the BG5/9 designations I'm afraid.

That's why I want to confirm the body/model designation. From what I've seen of the Japanese websites (Tein's website comes to mind) they define stuff by body style vice model year.

I think you are correct that the current body style came out earlier in Japan.

The body codes are (For Japan Dates, at leat a year earlier thsn the rest of the world)

First model 89-93 Model Codes BC/BF (saloon/estate)

Second 93-98. Model Codes BD/BG (saloon/estate)

Third and Current 98 on. Model Codes BE/BH (saloon/estate)

My car is a BG it is a late 93 model, this wasn't available in the UK until late 94 and the states in 95 I think.

Not sure what the next model will be - should be BF/BI but BF was the rirst wagon

Paul - your car is the same as mine (except mine is a sedan). So I guess that means my car is a BD rather than a BG. Thanks.

Pat,

Your car goes by the designation of BD5 in Japan. In Europe (Graham Goode) I believe that they go by BD9, which is the same as the States model.

Good luck.

BD9 has the 2.5L engine.
BD5 has the turbo engine.
Same thing for newer BE/BH series.
5 = turbo
9 = 2.5L N/A

US has BD6 for 98 Legacy which does not exist in japan. If you like to order parts, you will have to go by BD5 or BD9 for engine parts.

In that case what would a European 2.0L N/A or a 2.2L N/A designation be?

Thanks a lot guys. I'm not sure if I'll try ordering any engine parts (we'll see what my friend finds), but I definitely wanted to confirm the body style designation before I ordered any sort of body part.

I have had this question for sometime. The U.S. Legs are made in the States and from what I have heard have a different wiring set-up from Jap. mfg. cars. Is the rest of the body work an exact replica of the Jap. spec car or are there some subtle differences in bolts screws etc.?
