Re: specialist rover garage

Coincidentally, over on FB, S&V in Ossett got a glowing review yesterday. The reviewer was moved to report that his wife also appreciated the resulting improvement in their SEi's performance. I saw it :) I went to S&V a few years ago when I had my 75 but not really used them since then for some rea...

Unusual to hear of a car being described as electrically mediocre! What are the symptoms?

It will tell you where it was built, body style, model year, model type, engine type and gearbox type. What it doesn't tell you is the date it was built. If you send me the VIN I can decipher it for you.

Chassis Numbers

I wonder what we can learn from the chassis numbers of our R8s? There must be a way to decipher the codes somehow. Eg my SEi was registered on 29/2/96, and must be one of the latest registered SEi’s on the road (99% of survivors are 1995 registered). But I’m not sure what I can glean from the chassi...

Re: Hi Everyone

Welcome - it’s great to see the “newer” Rovers start to get a following. The sunroof should be easily sorted. Welcome!

ps I’d be happy to showcase your car on the club Twitter and Instagram if you like?!

Thanks for the reply’s I will look
into the terraclean and Servicing the
injectors.
When I can get chance I’m going to
fill up with some Shell v-power.
Read it might help.
Or use a standard fuel with Forte or STP or Redex etc?

I’ve put 2 and 2 together.... you must be a friend of Michael who has the SEi. I have one identical to him, and exchange messages with him every now and again.
