yes positive the tag is original... the car is a Canadian model.. maybe something different for the metric speedometer? when I got the car the check engine light was on.. the codes are for o2 sensor...I know this is missing they switched to headers and did not put in an o2. and the vss was the other fault code I have... have not had the dash out yet to check for the vss...also I noted when driving it home the speedo is in kilometers per hour but seemed to be reading in mph??
