To be honest I'd be quite interested if it was a bit cheaper & very interested if it had S3 suspension.
However... those wheels on the car look like 4 lug wheels, which kind of implies that its running S2 4x108?

All SA / FB had 4 lug wheels.

S1 / S2 = 4 x 110

S3 = 4 x 114.3

Oh for some reason I thought S3 was 5x114.3.

Live & learn!

I got some more pictures, & it does look smart inside, and underneath looks reasonable as well.
Just the price that's a bit excessive for a none runner.

And I'm always suspicious of rebuilt engines that aren't yet running.
