    Exactly, unless you didn't want someone HPI'ing it.

    So, Scam?

    Exactly the same reason you'd blank your plate posting a pic on here? If you want to run an HPI check, contact the seller and ask for the details, hardly difficult.

    But yes, at that price, scam.

    Cant even see the ad anymore...

    Must have been reported and therefore will most likely be a SCAM

    When I was looking for my A3, I found around 4 at an unbeliveable price... each of which replied with something along the lines of:

    "I am from UK but car is in Germany, pay £200 shipping" blah blah blah...

    Its even more unbelievable to think that people actually fall for something like that.
