I am usually a “keep it original“ kinda guy, but in this case the color really pushed my buttons. I communicated at length with the seller’s agent

I decided to pass in the end, but mostly I liked what I saw/heard. I have a lot of high-res photos of PM27G0D113098 if anyone is interested. The car was originally FK3 (the ad said “red” as the original color but it was actually orange).

That is a forgivable shade of purple. And Road Wheels would help it a lot.
But regardless, if you had bought it, I would mock your decision the next time I saw you. Right after the hello. :poke:

I really like that colour. I’m a purist but I could live with that no problem and yes some road wheels would really help! I’ve never seen that car before. You say the owner is a member @ayilar ?

I think the aftermarket wheels look good on this car, not too flashy, and they don't detract from it's looks.

To the best of my knowledge, he's not. He is an older gentleman, and the car is currently being sold on his behalf by an intermediary.

I concur, the car looks great in that color.
