Re: The cars your dad was likely to be driving in 1995...

My Dad was driving a poverty spec L-reg Rover 214i in 1995. It was a far cry from his previous Rover, a J-reg 214 SLi which was much more plush. He changed it because the monthly finance was less on the new L reg than it was on the 18 month old J reg. that is even though the L reg was purchased new ...

Re: New Rover owner - insurance advice

I found a couple of years ago that if the value is under £1,000 a lot of “classic” insurers won’t touch it.

I am reinsuring my Tourer later this month and will post how I get on. Thankfully the value of my current Rover is over £1k so it should be more straightforward this time.

That’s a coincidence - my sister emigrated to Canada 5 years ago. Haven’t seen her since she went :closedeyes

Re: Ayup folks!

It was all my dad’s fault too! He had plenty of BL/Rover stuff when I was a kid. Now I’m really into these cars!

Tourer looks good and will be better once it’s on some proper Rover alloys instead of aftermarkets.

And :welcome

Re: 1990 416GSi

Ive seen that, it's a stunning car. A bit too nice for me though, I'd be scared to drive it! No picture update today as none of my post came, and we've got the roofers in, and you can't use RugDoctor on velour so that put a dent in my plans (just going to use upholstery cleaner instead). I've order...

Re: 1990 416GSi

Great thread! I also had a 416 GSi auto in the same colour. See this thread. http://www.rover200.org.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?t=9857 Sold it just before Christmas. It didn’t really need anything doing to it as it only had 27k on the clock. But yours is the best way of doing it - returning a car to it...
