Of course the most glaring problem is that the car is NOT a genuine factory made Slantnose in spite of the apparent presence of several factory components.

The sales manager definitely sounds convinced that the car is authentic by his frequent references to a number of verifiable clues provided by two local "PCA experts" (a little bit of knowledge is a dangerous thing). His persuasive sales pitch will be of little consolation to the unsuspecting purchaser when he/she learns the truth about his/her "real factory built" Slantnose Turbo. Note the dealership's warranty paragraph where it holds itself harmless from any and all misrepresentations:
"The seller shall not be responsible for the correct description, authenticity, genuineness, or defects herein, and makes no warranty in connection therewith."

My thoughts exactly when I saw the listing this AM. First clue was no photo of the option code sticker.
