    Ad says 1990, plate say 04......now I know its not an 04 even although its imported. This is from around our way....never seen it about though.

    Reckon its "new" plates just stuck on to hide its real reg no??

    Not an expert on mk2 GSi/GTEs but should it not have headlamp washers on a 90 spec?

    If its been imported from Italy, it may have got an 04 registration as being first registered in the UK in 2004. It's a left hooker, so it is proper Opel spec and in the Italian market I don't think they'd see the need for ugly headlamp washers, as it doesn't rain over there anywhere near as much.

    I've seen GSi's in the Canary Islands and none of them had headlamp washers, probably for the same reasoning in the marketplace they sell.

      Those plates are not registered to ANY UK vehicle. They are not on the national data base!

          Doesn't work that way, can't make the car appear newer than it is even although its first registered over here at a later date. Still got all the bumf on the PC about importing from EU. It should have got an age related plate.

          Theres an "X" reg Escort Cossie that Jamieson Welding of Girvan had built.....he had to prove that a certain percentange of the parts and shell (even had to weld a 99shell bulkhead in) before they would grant the "X" plate

                  I am part of an unrecognised organisation that deals with all things that don't quite add up?? The fact that we deal with smut is just a small part of the operations!

                        I thought there were only 250 Champions that were only a UK thing to commemorate the great JC winning the BTCC championship in 89 so although it may well be a 1990 16v Astra GSI I can't see it being a Champion but I'm sure if I'm wrong then some one will be along to correct me.

                          Opel did do a special Edition Kadett GSi 2.0-16v around 1989-1990 with the same wheels & decals as the Vauxhall version of the Astra GTE 16v Champion & the Leather Recaros so looks to be a genuine car.
                          Heres an original press photo of the Kadett & it doesnt have the headlamp washers.

                            If this car had never been registed then it would get a 04 (or what ever year it was registed) crazy....
