I'm in Australia and not familiar with JDM idiosyncracies but here's my $0.02 worth:
- BPE-017032 corresponds to the heading "VIN" on the plate and is in the same location on the plate as Australian VIN's (albeit right-justified and less than half the length), so I'd assume that to be the VIN.
- BP indicates a BP-series Outback
. If yours doesn't look at all like the one pictured that'll be...interesting. These were manufactured from 2003-2009 and referred to as 3rd Gen in Australia and 2nd Gen in North America.
- In Australia the VIN is recorded on registration documents and I'd be surprised if that wasn't the case elsewhere. If you hold importation or registration documents for your car the VIN should be stated thereon.
