    This gtir on ebay is a ringer!

    http://item.mobileweb.ebay.co.uk/viewitem?itemId=280897297550

    The guy that bought the original car that this reg number belongs to wrote the car off!
    It was a black gtir and was owned prior by a close friend!
    Gtir devil I think wrote it off on modifiers and had the parts swapped over onto a grey shell he had, by a garage.

    He posted on modifiers about swapping the reg over because of the tax and insurance!

    Some ****s just don't care what they try to sell!

    I will post links in a mo! Bit slow doing it on a phone.

    Did he swap the VIN plates too, or would you find they don't match if you checked them? - He didn't have a V5 for the grey shell

    Sitting in his mum's drive for about two years, but it's barely five months since that car was written off? Did his insurance assess it; would the reg not be on a list of written-off cars now?

    I'd be tempted to report it to the DVLA, but I think you need to know an address (or at the least a street where you've seen it on a public road).

    Remember reading original thread about shell swap & advice on registering it correctly.
    Idiot needs reporting & banning from forums ...
    Quite unbelievable, the amount of bodged & badly rebuilt GTIRs is what ruined their reputation & made them close to worthless.
