100% illegal, all the pictures still show mexican plates. This was a Mexican Focus RS Mk2 and is not over 25 years old, therefore illegally in the country and fraudulently for sale as a road legal car.
What vin-decoder? You have to check with etis.ford.com, not the us databases.The VIN Decoder on Ford's website shows that it's a Focus ST Coupe built in Germany... It shows 4 cylinders but a 2.5L engine. [screwy]
I'm no expert but that doesn't sound right...
You either have to own property in Mexico, or be a Mexican citizen iirc in order to maintain registration of the car in Mexico.I understand now. Like I said, no expert.
How would you be able to keep a Mexican registration though while living and driving in the US?
