How to verify it's a EAP through the VIN?

Hey Guys

I'm looking at a SVT ZX5 EAP online. I just want to make sure it's a true EAP and not one someone paid extra to get the seats in. Is there a way to confirm through the VIN that it's a true SVT ZX5 with EAP?

Please let me know!

Thanks!

well the eap is going to have traction control, mach headlights(hid) seat warmers, and the Recaro seats, that's the only difference. i think.

What color is it? If it's yellow or orange it's definitely an EAP.
Thanks! I sent him a PM. It's a 2004 EAP in Blue. I'm still shopping for my 1st SVTF. I'm just very picky. I was looking for a ZX5 EAP in Silver, but then I saw this blue one and was like "that's hot!'

I agree but I like them both. I had a true blue blue 01 cobra and it was not an easy color to deal with. Every chip showed up! and that was just a weekend car. The EAP will be my DD

Only bad thing about the 5 door SVT's are NO sideskirts. You can buy them off the 3 door and modify them a little bit to fit the 5 doors [:P]. Congrats on your new car. You will love it. I wish I had gotten a 5 door myself, especially if I could have found an orange one.

But I don't think you can tell just by the VIN. Then again I'm not 100% sure. See if they have the original window sticker in the glovebox or something.

The only other difference (EAP) not mentioned yet in this thread,
is the door and quarter panel inserts are the same perforated leather as the Recaro seats.
Non-EAP models have blue or red cloth panel inserts matching the color of the seats.
