I've removed a little bit of information, it would make it very easy for someone to clone the car..

 

 

didnt think of that .. so would an R reg GTI have , no spoiler , no skirts , no half leather seats , no white clocks , no alloys , no fogs ? ..just seems a bit strange

Might have an unregistered GTI engine init ? So he has advertised it as a GTI but hasn't declared it to the DVLA yet, hence it still being a CL on the books....

 

means not declaired so wouldnt say on new keepers supliment it was a gti :nutter:
