Caveat Emptor...tag swap?

124379N608379

Has an X77 body tag dated 08A. At one time, the car had a re-issued VIN tag 124379N670189 which corresponds to an 08A body tag date.

If 124379N608379 is the VIN on the tag in the dash, could be a problem.

Never seen a 4 digit interior trim code before?

Most of these stealships know the tags, engine stamps etc are fake but don't care one bit and sell them as if they are factory.
