    Not sure there is a way to tell for definate, if you where that keen you could take a standard car and change all the bits over, after all that's all the factory did to make one. I think on the log book for my last R it just said 2.3.

    Engine code should be B5234T5 for a T5R (as opposed to B5234T for a standard 850 T5)

    If its of any help mine says "850 T5 GLT" under model.
    Arguing is pointless....she may not be right but she's never wrong

    Tell her a remap is just having your satnav updated.....
