Maybe I'm just being paranoid.

Things arent adding up and I totally just realized my "R" doesnt even have the "R" front bumper.

Anyone have VIN checking abilities?

The 6th and 7th digit on the VIN should be "52" if it's an R.

Just double check the sticker matches the imprinted vin on dashboard and on the plate on the side of the engine compartment.
The sticker looks factory to me, not to worry.

That sticker tends to look like it's stacked, but I can never quite tell. Mine are like that too. As long as the VIN on the firewall/cowl matches, you're good.
