Check the VIN

What am I looking for that would indicate a WS6 in the VIN?

Anyone else have any advise?

tag on drivers side door, It will say WS6 as one of the RPO codes.....along with GU7 for the 3.42 rear gear. Seems easier than looking at the VIN

Then the door was replaced/repainted, at that point, I woudl more question the condition of the car, vs if it is a real ws6 or not.

Does it have correct exhaust? What year?

Run the VIN through a dealer's computer to get a list of RPOs for that car, WS6 should be one of them.

I agree, missing decal on driver's door is a sure sign that door has been replaced, look for other damage too.

The car is for sale locally so I am not sure if my local dealer would be willing to do that.

The service department should run the VIN for you without any trouble. I've done this at several dealerships and I've never had anyone say no.
