Spoke to neighbour an hour or so ago and gave him one my own business cards (BTW: Random Bloke YHM). He says he may join the site
Had a chat about the car - seems it is a pre facelift 171 from 2005 and an automatic. The little rectangles I was talking about are apparently factory order mounting points for a roof rack. He says his was a special order paint too but neither of us are sure the paint is the same - I'm sure they'll look totally different parked side by side. Will have to wait until tomorrow at the earliest to see them side by side and the weather forecast ain't looking too good for that (also have a very sore foot post hospital stay and angioplasty!!)
Check the color code on the door jam placard, usually on driver's side.
