White mark 5's are really rare, can't remember exactly but think there is maybe slightly under 20 in uk?

I remember a white one being discussed on here not so long ago and it turned out it had been sprayed white?

Whereabouts was it?

Yes, they are very rare and although some people quote 7off in the UK, I believe it's slightly more. All the official ones have factory fitted sunroofs.

this has a factory roof and has never had a colour change according to hpi is there anywhere I can find out officially before I part with my money
Take note of the VIN and contact VW, they should be able to tell you if it is genuine or not.

A second way would be to take a look at the paint code. There should be a sticker either in the handbook wallet or under the boot carpet - possibly in the spare wheel well.

Chances are, if it has a sunroof it will be genuine.

According to google, the paint code is LB9A. If needed I can look at my car tomorrow to confirm.

Finally, if anyone says '1 of 7' their talking BS.

At least you are very very local to me, so when you sell up I can buy yours!

I can confirm that LB9A is the paint code you are looking for. The sticker in question could well be under the foam support in the boot - which will require removing the spare wheel and obviously the foam to find. Some supplying dealers are more energetic than others when hiding them.

And I hope you are a patient man Andrew as I am not planning on selling my one anytime soon. However, you may have to join a small queue IF I did decide I was letting go.
