What makes the s model different is the 2 tone colour. It was a run out model 0f 200 cars.
Some people say 165. Has sport suspension,3 spoke steering wheel, Recaro interior, bbs front spoiler, bbs 13" wheels all as standard .
Factory extras were pas,lsd. So not all models came with these extras as they were expensive at the time of production.

This is the reason I jumped at the chance to buy the car as its a rare car. Its not known how many are left on the road.
Ive spent a small fortune on it but I think its a car worth spending on as there is only one way prices will go on these cars.
In my opinion I have 2 desirable e21's in great condition.
As for the spray job was done locally to me in north London. The guy is called Dan as is great at what he does.

Thanks for the good comments on the rebuild. It's always nice to hear when people appreciate the car .

The s edition sounds hot, is this the one owner ? What's the other tone on it?

I ve toyed with the idea of respraying my car in a different colour but this two tone sounds perfect, but what other tone would go with henna red? Can you think of and help me here. Cheers cobblers
