Re: Hi, just got a 420 GSI 2.0 Tourer

Hi Steve, welcome!

Good to see a fellow 420 GSi Tourer owner. I love mine. :)

I’ve seen three for sale recently - green, grey and blue, so I expect yours may be one of those?

There is no manual for the 2.0 R8. Closest I could get was for the Rover 420 (bubble shape). Not ideal but it will do.

I’m no too far away from you in Wakefield. Maybe see you at the Thirsk meet in Jan.

Re: What are your Plans and Projects for 2019 ??

As always it’s down to money, but at present I’m saving to get my Streetwise alloys refurbished so they can go on the Tourer. And there will be a few jobs such as rust proofing the arches/sills etc. I’ve also got a sill edge to knock back where some not good garage jacked it up in the wrong place be...

Re: 1990 ROVER 416 GTI 1.6 PETROL 4 DOOR SALOON - G687 CRL

This would be a nice project! An early one too (May 1990)

A few advisories on the last MOT but nothing major.

Full leather and rare all round electric windows. I like it.

Hi John, I’m looking forward to spring already. Winter is a bane for enjoying our cars. See you in 2019.

Re: What's it worth (sorry)

You’ll sell it and you’ll miss it. You might not miss that exact car, but you’ll be hankering after another R8 before long I can guarantee it. I’ve done it myself many times!

Re: Intro, but not a newbie.

I broke a 216 earlier this year and have lots of bits. Let me know if there’s anything you need!

Re: Tourer End Of Production

I have a late Tourer too (March 1996) N reg with the square dash. I love it, and always preferred the older dash over the newer bubble style.

Re: Rover 420i cutting out when cold.

Well its been long enough now and had enough cold mornings to say touch wood but the coolant temperature sensor has fixed it! Hasn't cut out since the new one was fitted nearly a month back. Still a bit lumpy for the first few minutes but I can live with that. That’s good to hear :) I just might do...

Re: Rover 214 SEI 16V Guide price up and running?

I am not a million miles away from you (Wakefield). If any forum members are interested, I’m happy to go and take a look.

Do you have any pics of the car? What colour is it?

All the best
Paul
