Re: Type of Lude???

type sh comes with atts. Base does not. When turning on the car(look around where the speedometer) if it doesnt say atts then you prob have a base. (type sh also came with different wheels, painted lip kit)

Re: Type of Lude???

There is a thread around here on how to tell an SH from a base..."how to spot an SH" or something like that....


Does it say Type SH on your rear bumper?
Your side skirts, are they black or painted the same color as the car?
Is your shifter some kind of plastic/metal or is it wrapped in leather?
Does an ATTS light pop up on the dash when you start the car, then shut off?
Does your car have a spoiler? If so, is there a third brake light on it?

If it says type SH on the back thats a pretty dead giveaway. Other than that, SH's have painted side skirts, a leather wrapped shifter knob, ATTS, and a spoiler with a third brake light built into the spoiler. There are a bunch of other ways to tell too.

Re: Type of Lude???

Tail light in fender? Do u mean side markers?

Some ppl put the sh wing and paint their lips on a base... So if you aren't sure if it's a base or sh..

Look in the back window. If there's a 3rd brake light inside the back window than it's a base (if it's a base with a sh wing you will be able to see the old 3rd brake light.. Unless they removed it and now have a hole or got the sh back lid thing)

The sh comes with a spoiler with a 3rd brake light therefore it does not have one in the back window.

There are alot of different differences between a base and sh.. I know there's a thread on here that has all of them..

Re: Type of Lude???

Something about the ignorance in this thread just annoys me.
Hopefully, if you can't figure out what kind of car you have... You're NOT doing the brake-job yourself...
Also...Use the search option before posting. There IS a thread about telling the differences between a base model and an SH model.

Re: Type of Lude???

Thankyou. The above post made my own point of view perfectly clear. Especially when there was a thread asking this exact same question (by some other ignoramus) only a week or two ago.
