Mine had a few errors: 8K196GL251310 I was sold the car as being a berlina, this says otherwise, also the diff was said to be LSD, tag suggests otherwise going by the diff tag thread.

Just tried again:

I suspected that something MAY have been wrong with yours.

It just didn't look untouched and remember my post about that badge on the RHS of the bootlid? Badge just not where it should have been, merely put there by someone after converting to turbo

Build date is 86 so its an 86 model

GMH considered late year models to be next years models for selling purposes

Thats strange nick. you have 35 in the body shape. That should work. Where you have a Z, traditionaly that should be a number to go with the letter in front of it as part of which factory your car was built in.
i just had a go with 35 for body in the calculator and I get an error too. Must be something wrong with the calculator.
