Re: RoverRevival Open Day (new year maybe)

Hi Craig, I might be interested in this but it's a bit early to make a commitment. It is going to depend upon the lockdown situation, any family plans and (to a certain extent) what the weather is going to be like.

416 Amongst 3 cars for 'banger racing'

Re: Hi Everyone

Welcome to the club. That looks like a really nice example of the 25 you've got there. You should find advice on here for your leaky sun roof drains. I think there have been posts about this before in our technical forums - might be worth searching them. Otherwise post for advice yourself. This is a...

Re: 1987 Rover 216S Scrappage Scheme Victim/Rescue?

The fact that it if you leave it a few minutes it works again suggests the previous time you used it the remaining power got drained and it's just recovered enough to work briefly the next time. Replacing the fob batte...
