It says series 3, but isn't it a series 2?

The rear end looks identical to mine & the interior console looks like my S2 as well. I thought they were different on the S3s?

Yeah it looks like a s2 on a 1985 plate. So possibly confusing the seller...

I always thought the s3 had the grey interior, what were the other options other than grey/red as above?

Brown was one of the other options

I thought the S3 interiors had the dials for the heater controls on the dashboards rather than the sliders that are on the S2? Or is that just the American ones?

LHD only. All RHD kept the s2 style dash through s3. There were some minor differences but the general styling is identical.
