Forgot to say I picked up KIMI 3 a week ago, pics below taken the day she arrived at my place. I haven't had much of a chance to drive her much, especially with the lousy weather! However, I did a 40 mile run and she was a delight, but I do have a strange "rubbing" sound to sort out from the rear, on left turns mainly. I was aware of it before I purchased, so reflected in the price I offered.

They certainly look like TWR. Need to look at another set to be sure. Front unfortunately damaged long ago and lost.... :(

A red TWR or Elford fibreglass rear wing on place of the rubber spoiler would complete the look I reckon.... still looks great as it is though th:
