I somehow missed this..............:icon_frown:

Some of Subaru's Destination Codes:-

EC - Europe LHD
EK - Europe RHD
EH - China
KS - Middle East
K4 - Central and South America
KA - Australia
E2 - Israel
K0 - General LHD
K1 - General RHD
Blank - Hong Kong


No clue on the ER (Russia?) or EL

Update: ER - Republic of Ireland (RHD+KPH)

Ok, revival.

Looking for destination code for mine, will need it for ecu definitions. I'm located in Singapore and this is my applied model code; SH9BK9T

From searching found out that the fitht digit should represent the destination so that's K. Have found other info on such as KA etc but mine isn't that it would be K9... Any ideas guys?
Cheers

In this instance, destination means RHD or LHD K= RHD; L= LHD


The Destination code is sometimes part of the OPTION CODE, but only when looking at destinations within a large area e.g. Europe with both RHD and LHD.

Have not seen any specific code for Singapore.

Jst to add: In the North American Applied model codes the fifth character is a "Y" refering to the US and Canada.

Ok well that's correct then, RHD, 2.5 XT ect.
How am I going to identify it as a region/market?
My option code is ER65

From other posts and forums have found this could mean; Europe (unknown)

Anyway of identifying it further?

Does anyone know what the Destination/Region Code for JAPAN is?

I am also interested to know what region "EE" refers to.
There is no destination/region code as such for JDM as they have their own unique VIN system with the VIN only having 9 characters.
Temperature Font Number


As for your other item, "EE" was, as of 2017 workshop manuals, listed under the "General" category.
Is this is in relation to your listed vehicle "2019 Forester 2.0L" ???
