how would you know if someone is trying to sell you a fake mugen and they had all the same modifications like the lip kit, wheels, suspension, badges, ect.

A Mugen Si? I would think a telltale sign would be the VIN#.

Other than that, it's just knowing what real Mugen and fake Moogen looks like and making the distinction between the two.

Also, if you are looking at Mugen. They will only be on Sedans not coupes. The little change tray on the inside will also have a stamped Mugen badge on it.

Quick comparison. I went out and found a normal FA5s VIN and a Mugen Sis VIN.

FA5 ......... 2HGFA55547H700751
Mugen Si .. 2HGFA55508H700764

I think they just pulled normal FA5s off the production line.
