Question VIN Terms

Okay, I know there is this forum "General Terms and Acronyms" that touches up on this. But I think there are a few models missing.

The main ones that we know and love are:

FA1 = USDM Civic Sedan (LHD)
FA3 = USDM Civic Hybrid (LHD)
FA5 = Civic Si Sedan & Civic Mugen Si (LHD)
FG1 = Civic Coupe (LHD)
FG2 = Civic Si Coupe (LHD)
FD1 = JDM/Asian Civic Sedan (RHD)
FD2 = JDM Civic Type-R & Civic Mugen RR (RHD)
FN2 = European Civic & Civic Type-R (RHD)


But there are 3 that I know are missing. Those 3 are FA2 (Which I found out by searching the forums. There was a user by the name of EX-i who posted this forum here that states he has a FA2 RHD USDM looking Civic Sedan EX-i), FA4 and FD3.

FA2 = USDM Civic Sedan (RHD)
FA4 = Civic GX (LHD)
FD3 = JDM/Asian Civic Hybrid (RHD)

I also know of this LHD JDM/Asian Civic which is shown on the Civic Wikipedia page. Unfortunately I can't figure out where they sell them as LHD and I can't get a hold of a VIN either for me to figure out if it has a different classification.

This leads me to wonder if there is a RHD Si Sedan, RHD Mugen Si, RHD Si Coupe or a RHD standard coupe out there. Which all 4 of these can be a possibility.

I highly doubt there is a LHD JDM Type R, LHD JDM Mugen RR, LHD European Civic or LHD European Type R. And same for a RHD GX.

So in total there are these that I know of:

FA1 = USDM Civic Sedan (LHD)
FA2 = USDM Civic Sedan (RHD)
FA3 = USDM Civic Hybrid (LHD)
FA4 = Civic GX (LHD)
FA5 = Civic Si Sedan & Civic Mugen Si (LHD)
FG1 = Civic Coupe (LHD)
FG2 = Civic Si Coupe (LHD)
FD1 = JDM/Asian Civic Sedan (RHD)
FD2 = JDM Civic Type-R & Civic Mugen RR (RHD)
FD3 = JDM/Asian Civic Hybrid (RHD)
FN2 = European Civic & Civic Type-R (RHD)

Is anyone able to get a hold of a VIN from a LHD JDM/Asian Civic?

And does anyone know of any RHD Si Sedan, RHD Mugen Si, RHD Si Coupe, or a RHD standard coupe out there?

UPDATE: Revised version of the list, found more model code names. Used this site as reference and did extensive research online to confirm that these are correct. So I can now conclude that these are all the models available for 8th gen civics.

FA1 = USDM Civic Sedan (LHD)
FA2 = USDM Civic Sedan (RHD)
FA3 = USDM Civic Hybrid (LHD)
FA4 = Civic GX (LHD)
FA5 = Civic Si Sedan & Civic Mugen Si (LHD)
FG1 = Civic Coupe (LHD)
FG2 = Civic Si Coupe (LHD)
FD1 = JDM/Asian Civic Sedan 1.8L (RHD)
FD2 = JDM Civic Type-R & Civic Mugen RR (RHD)
FD3 = JDM/Asian Civic Hybrid (RHD)
FD4 = JDM/Asian Civic 1.6L (RHD)
FD5 = Reserved for Acura CSX
FD6 = JDM/Asian Civic 1.6L (LHD)
FD7 = JDM/Asian Civic 1.8L (LHD)
FK1 = European Civic 5-Door 1.4L (LHD & RHD)
FK2 = European Civic 5-Door 1.8L (LHD & RHD)
FK3 = European Civic 5-Door 2.2L (LHD & RHD)
FN1 = European Civic 1.8L Type-S (LHD & RHD)
FN2 = European Civic Type-R (LHD & RHD)
FN3 = European Civic 2.2L Type-S (LHD & RHD)
FN4 = European Civic 3-Door 1.4L (LHD & RHD)

I think only Canada, US and Mexico got the coupes. I have never ever come across a rhd fg1 or fg2. But that would be really cool if they existed, I'm hoping someone proves me wrong.

We can rule those out as well, And I think the Si & Mugen Si were also only made for Canada, US and Mexico.

I've come to the conclusion that a LHD JDM Type R, LHD JDM Mugen RR, LHD European Type R, RHD GX, RHD Si Sedan, RHD Mugen Si, RHD Si Coupe and RHD standard coupe do not exist seeing that those were made specifically for certain areas I'm only really looking for a VIN Term for 1 more vehicle which would be a LHD JDM/Asian Civic. I'd assume it's FD5 but without a VIN from one I can't know for sure.

UPDATE: I found a LHD European Civic right here OMG, this vehicle possibly has a different VIN as well, could possibly be FN1 or FN3 but unfortunately I can't get my hands on one.

So for now I'm looking for the VIN of 2 vehicles, one from a LHD JDM/Asian Civic and one from a LHD European Civic. With those 2 I think the list would be complete.

I have a LHD 4-door JDM Civic, originally sold in Eastern Europe. Its VIN is FD1 just like its RHD friends.

We have a fair number of LHD European 3/5 door Civics here; I'll take a look at the VIN next time I walk by one.

Oh so those are the same as the RHD ones, well that clears up that. Just looking for confirmation on the European ones then.
