I don't think it's a FED front, is it? The indicators are not buried in the bumper?
Strange about those wheels, indeed!?

Looking at it again, I think you're right. Based on the 5 hole wheels, I think it's CGI - but why?

There is also something a bit weird near the right mirror attachment to the door. And the "seal" along the front screen right side is strange too. But maybe it's just the lighting.
The 5 stud wheels are not a lighting visual effect though! :-D

The wheels look a lot like my Esprit S4 wheels, but the tires look positively agricultural!

Maybe it's Enrights ? A certain Andy Enright wrote the review. Maybe a relative ? And Neil did have 3 Pacific Blue's a wee while ago. But probably not circa 2005

My real money is on Tony (abmunro) Something in my memory banks thinks that Tony's was a Japanese import once upon a time ???? I have a feeling that it was registered in Britain, got exported to Japan then came home again. The reason I say this is that I briefly looked at the car many years ago

As for the rear I am not quite sure, it could well be a FED spec, or maybe the boot line is just lost in the highlight but ... I don't think so, I would say it's more a FED rear.

Esprit888 > That could well be two pairs of front (?) Esprit S4/GT3 wheels indeed. But I wonder what hubs could be used ... ?
As for the tires, the original MXX2 Michelin looked rather similar: https://www.ebay.com/itm/NOS-MICHELIN-M ... 1724649731
(Nice car by the way! :-))

Fed front and rear ?? Two chances. None and sweet FA. Spot the obvious differences ??

Looks to me like the reflection on the rear hip is showing signs of Photoshop so I wouldn't make any judgement about the boot opening... and the 5 stud wheels are just weird ! You pay 'an arm and a leg' for a 4 stud S2, how much for a 5 stud ???

Now here's a 2 minute photoshop bastard picture - what's changed? :lol:
