    @Eknoors Our understanding is that only a couple of items are listed on the COA from that S package (Koni Shocks and Stabilizer bars) But the vehicle is physically equipped with an S steel front spoiler, S front Brake Calipers, S Front and Rear sway bars, S Koni shocks. Along with no evidence of any of these items ever being installed after the fact on any of the substantial service records.
