Hello Ms. Roberts, you can always check if it tells you in the vehicle's Owners Manual. Or you can get the VIN# from the dashboard, and call an Infiniti Dealer so they can tell you the sub model.

I have a 1998 Infinity i30. When looking for parts they ask about the submodel. There is "BASE" and "T". How can I tell what submodel do I have?

Hi Kyle, You can determine your vin number by using any vin decoder website online!. For example we type "FREE VIN DECODER" into Google and many options will come up. We were able to determine the following information: Body style: SEDAN 4-DR Driveline: FWD Trim level: ES

Hello! I drive a 2011 Mitsubishi Lancer, and I need to know the submodel of my car for the person that is doing my brakes. I think the options for the sub model are DE, SE, ES, Ralliart, and Evolution, but I know I dont have the evo or the Ralliart, so I have to have either the DE, SE, or the ES. My Vehicals vin number is this im pretty sure: TA32U2FU9BU002102 I also found this info on the windsheild, which says AGC AUTOMOTIVE E6 43R-000180 DOT-477 M848 AS1 CCC E000011 13Q LAMISAFE . . 0 Hope that all helps, thank you for any information you can give me!

Hello Shelby, We received your comment in regards to what your sub model is for the 2015 Nissan GT-R and we would not be able to provide that information for you. You can however search for that information online using a VIN decoder. We unfortunately do not have any custom products for your vehicle at this time.

Hello Roy,

Your submodel is the body style of your vehicle. If it does not say on your vehicle itself, please check your owners manual or call in to the dealership with your VIN number to find out.

Thank you

Your web site is not behaving itself this morning. Will not bring down the trailer harness for my vehicle, and will not go to the hitches as soon as you put in your details ?. Therefore cannot buy to-day !.
