It is a 73, however Frankenalfa. I'm guessing an accident at some point and probably cheaper to put on a used s3 nose and rubber bumpers. A lot of modifications have been done over the years to this....

Console toggle purpose?

Hi all,

Can anyone tell me what the little toggle switch at the top right of the console is for? I've played with it however doesn't seem to do anything. Aftermarket maybe?
