Matey, if you go to this site and look up your VIN you will find out what sort of vehicle it was when it left the factory http://www.etis.ford.com/home.do

Fluke? But mine also says 19th of March?

I'm 2003 - what year was the car you searched?

Very handy! I suppose all EBXR8s would say (High Power) next to, engine type v8? My electric windows seem to be factory (no holes in the xr doortrims), my xr rear seat has headrests and the fuel comp/clock looks factory wired but none of these are listed. To what extent were options fitted at the dealer?
