    Coupe "Upgrade"

    My silver 216SE Coupe Auto is great little car, but will need a bit of money spent to keep tip top. Drives brilliantly and still looks the biz, but just needs a bit of TLC. Having got the Tomcat bug as my every other day daily driver, I have hankered after a manual and always liked the...

    What a dipstick!

    Be very careful when some well meaning person starts saying nice things about your pride and joy when you are doing your pre/mid flight checks at a petrol station. There I was checking oil, (Gentlman in Silver Astra - You don't see many of those these days. I said you don't see many of those...

    1990 Rover 827 Fastback

    Such a long way away from down here in soft southern Sussex. It would be a very practical replacement for the Atomic Kitten. If only you were a bit nearer!

    How many classic Rovers does any enthusiast actually need?

    No matter what your current ownership, the answer is always N+1 - where N = the number of classic Rovers currently owned. There is always room for one more!

    MOT Passed Today

    Another Rover Mot'd. The P6 went for its first MOT since I bought it. Passed no issues but advised one front calliper is slightly sticky, all three Rovers now ticketed for the rest of 2014 and two of them into 2015.

    SD1's, love them or hate them?

    I used to be a bit indifferent until I bought a Vitesse 9 months ago. It replaced a very nice P6 V8S that went up in smoke. Very different to a P6 and not easy to make direct comparisons. Still own a P6 - bought a fab 4 pot in January. Love them both. Even the SD1 despite the trials and...

Total value of cars on policy at one point was £18K, only a small admin every time a car goes on or off. In contrast to other poster on here, was extremely...

    Switches are pure early S2 SC - exactly as pictured in the August 1971 release hand book - headlamp/sidelamp switch is the green illuminated type, the others are the black un illuminated "gherkin"/hook shape. The TC got all illuminated switches and the order is slightly different

    Now have a P6 again!

    Absolutely Warren - carpet condition tells a huge amount about the overall condition of P6. I have looked at so many in the last 7 months before buying this car. Its not just wear and tear, its how they fit, any sign of damp marks, have they been out and in a few times and so on and so on...
