2006 156 V6?? How exactly?
Just a silly question really and apologies if it has all been gone over before, but;
I have a November 2006 registered 156 V6, and have heard and read various stories and speculation as to how the car came to be registered approx. 4 years after its build date.
Most stories seem to refer to either a fire damaged salvaged shipment of NZ spec cars, or a returned order of Malaysian spec vehicles which were victims of an import tax issue.
Does anybody have the definitive answer, or could point me to it?
I am curious to know where the car spent its early years, and why.
Is there, for example, any way of judging by spec, or chassis/V.I.N which country the car was destined for?
It is listed on the V5c as a Q-system Veloce and has a cloth interior with heated seats which seems to me slightly odd? I can find no stickers on any components or parts inside dated later than October 2002.
Thanks in advance for any ideas.
