Something doesn't look right to me, the white sills?

It's been up for sale before. Probably had welding and then had the sills painted incorrectly. Driver's seat is original, it's just the fabric has stretched and come unstuck from the foam.

Did early GTis really come without the front spoiler? Also, the wheel covers aren't GTi ones, I think.

Is this one of the stockpiles of BX's bought by Richard of Keighley? If his, looks like they have now been a good investment.

This current seller has a different name & town business location so possibly has bought from Richard but I guess we'll never know for sure. :?

White sills are wrong, early ones didn't have the front splitter!
