it doesn't look like a respray, unless it was done ages ago, cause the paint work looks the age of the car (if u know what i mean)

actually thinking about it, didnt they do a special thing once when you could have any colour you wanted, hence there is a couple of black 5 doors kicking around too.

god knows
the only Black GSi (proper ones) have always been NON UK
best bet just check in places where they wouldent paint and just mask off
