It retains the original VIN tag under the hood on the passenger side apron and the stamped VIN on the rain tray (both are places the DMV & insurance adjusters don't look). This car never had a VIN tag on the dash or in the driver side door jam. I have a Mk2 VIN tag that has been etched to match the VIN of the 4 door title. Technically, "swapping" VIN's is illegal so I think this is a nice gray area that would only come into play if the car were in an accident. Other than that, fooling a DMV worker during an out-of-state inspection isn't rocket science. Officially, the car was imported for "off-road use only."
I would trade both my running MK2 8v and MK3 VR6 with rebuilt motor (An accumulated $10k) for this! No bull****.
But this:Makes it sound very illegitimate.Trades: The only trade I’ll consider will be a Mk3 Golf or Jetta with cut springs, steelies, and a rusted hood. If you have this I’ll give you this car plus $5,000. Thanks for looking.
wow admitting to VIN fraud openly?
you really are stupid
i hope for your sake no one forwards this to the feds or you will no longer have a car or your freedom
FYI to any buyers, this car is illegal in every state
I wouldnt normally do this, but you are acting like it is no big deal, when it clearly is

Who are you, and why do you think people care about what your opinion? You're obviously ignorant because I've explained several times that this car hasn't been VIN swapped. Not sure how much more cut and dry I can make it.
Again, you want a Country and you can't have the best example currently available for sale. So, you decide to be an internets crusader and try to trash my FS thread. I find two things very interesting. 1- You feel the need to keep posting in MY thread where it's obvious nobody cares about your opinion. And, 2-You claim that Ali's Country is cleaner than mine despite you never seeing this car in person (which I would LOVE to show you). Not that I care. Maybe his is cleaner than mine, that's not why I'm here. But that's a pretty ignorant statement considering the facts. Also, since you're so g@y for Ali, why not just go back to performing phallacio on him while drooling over his car?
He's just a guy that had a Rallye here in the USA that was imported improperly without his knowledge and the feds came looking for it to destroy it.
Yes, there are people working for the federal government who do nothing but find illegally imported cars....they find them, you have to surrender the car, and they crush it.
He had to surrender the car and one beautiful Rallye Golf ended up like this....
