    Wonder if this was the results of the US custom seizures/investigation of 160-180 series/defenders back in August/September? 1 Doctor imported 40+ illegal series/defenders into the US.

    Yes some I read that:p. But when that broke in the news US officials were working with UK officials to find the source of the altered ID/VINs. You know the crooks
