    '99 engine code

    I am about to buy a '99 9-3 that has the CarFax saying it has 2.0L I4 16V engine, but I don't know which engine code it is. How do I determine which engine it is? I know it is either the 204L or 204R. Is there a way to tell the difference?

    The 8th digit of the VIN is the engine code. "N" is standard output turbo and "P" is high ouput turbo. I don't know how that correlates to B204L or R though.
