Yeah that's Aug 14, 2012 as it is in the European date format. That seems to be an early build ST, but why does it seem to have the standard suspension set up as far as the strut tower bar?

DV61-16A200-A would be a 2013 part number vs the 2012 part number CV6Z-16A200-A, but that doesn't explain why some seemingly showed up in early 2011 builds off and on, but not in the later standard builds until 2013?
