White series 3 for sale on Ebay.
Its got wire wheels which I haven't seen before, but I don't think they suit the car.
Its white with a brown interior, an unusual combination, but i suppose it might have had a colour change.
Buy it now price £2995

it used to be green. The last time we saw it for sale back in 2013 it sold for £950.
Bolt on wires.... not a good look on anything made after the war.

I was thinking of colour coding the black trim on mine, but that cars persuaded me otherwise. Think its looks far better with the black & white combo.

I think wire wheels can work, but maybe not those ones.

all one colour can look ok, but I think that car on Ebay is too much with white door handles and side mirrors too. I think I prefer S2/3s with black mouldings all around intact rather than removed, but if you're going to remove them I'd paint the parts of the bumpers body colour.
