Bianchi Argentin X4... Really?

Victim of a repaint, does this frame even match an X4?

Even if it is I think it is too far gone for a resto.
But what features about this frame could confirm that it is an X4?

Why too late for a resto? Sure, it's a waste of the paintjob, but any expert painter out there could have this bike in Celeste again in no time. And please, owner, get rid of that Truvativ stuff. It makes my eyes hurt.

I saw that the other day and few months ago (I think). The rolled headbadge would seem to suggest it is a better quality frame, this was only done to a few (very few) models, but the only way to tell for sure would be to look for the X-4 mark on the brake bridge. I think the seller sent me a pic but I can't remember.

It could be a nice Bianchi again but without the original pantographed and anodized C-Record group it is just a SLX frame. In desperate need of a repaint.
