It's the same US Premium Black Edition that you would have purchased. I have been making mods to make it more like the JDM Forester tS model that isn't available in the US, unfortunately.

It's like the old question, if you replace all the parts on a boat, is it the same boat? The answer being, it doesn't matter, it's now an awesome &%^&% boat.
